Where to find pydoc?

P: n/a

I tried to call pydoc from my Linux box.
To my realization that it doesn't contain
pydoc.

I thought this module should be a default module.

Can anybody suggest where can I find the module?
I tried:

$ easy_install pydoc
Searching for pydoc
Reading http://sqlobject.org/ <http://sqlobject.org/>
Reading http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist <http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist>
Reading http://www.python.org/pypi/pydoc/ <http://www.python.org/pypi/pydoc/>
Couldn't find index page for 'pydoc' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Reading http://www.python.org/pypi/ <http://www.python.org/pypi/>
No local packages or download links found for pydoc
error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('pydoc')
Hope to hear from you again.

Yes it is part of the standard library. What distribution are you using?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.

Red Hat Linux Enterprise:
Linux host.com 2.6.9-34.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Feb 24 16:54:53 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Python 2.3.4.

Any problem with that?

only that Red Hat obviously hasn't bothered to include "pydoc" in the
distribution you're using.

look for "python-tools" or a similar package in your favourite package
repository.

Hi,
Can you be specific on which URLs can I find "python-tools".
Cause I tried the one under easy_install, I still can't find it.

Thanks and hope to hear from you again.

it's an RPM. you should be able to get it from where you get other
RedHat packages.
