Is there a single source that explains these statements?
------------------------------
from Tkinter import *
from Numeric import *
import Image
import ImageChops
import ImageTk
import time
import binascii
import tkMessageBox
import tkSimpleDialog

from tkFileDialog import asksaveasfilename
from tkFileDialog import askopenfilename

import socket
import struct
import glob
import bisect
import os, os.path
import datetime

from os.path import basename, splitext

While that's an interesting link, I was thinking of the named items like:
Numeric, (this one I know about.)
Image
ImageChops
ImageTk
time
binascii
tkMessageBox
tkSimpleDialog

...
For example, what is the Image module? MakeQTE? ospath?

Okay, sorry.

The Image* modules are from PIL.

time
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-time.html
binascii
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-binascii.html
tkMessageBox
tkSimpleDialog
These are also from the standard library. See your lib-tk/ directory.

...

MakeQTE is new to me. Google only brings up this thread.
ospath?
os.path. It's a sub-module of the standard os module.
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-os.path.html

socket, struct, glob, bisect, and datetime are standard library modules.

Actually, there are no such things as sub-modules (as you'll find out if you
try to define one). What it really is is a variable in that module, which
points to another module (e.g. posixpath).
