Which modules?

P: 2

Total newbie; I kind of understand modules and I totally see why they are so useful. I guess my big question with them is how do I know what modules are out there and how do I know which modules I need for the code I'm trying to write. I.E. instead of writing a bunch of functions, code, etc, how do I know or not know if there is a module out there that does the same thing and I can just import it at the beginning.

To begin with, peruse the latest Python documentation to see what is built-in and what needs to be imported. Also, do a web search to find modules that others wrote and make available to the public - example: "Python read Excel" to find xlrd, xlwt and xlutils modules for reading and writing Excel files.
