No, the docstring is the first string after a function or class
definition, that is displayed interactively by "help name", and used
for documentation of the function or class.
http://docs.python.org/reference/com...on-definitions
Footnotes [3] & [4]

The proper name for three-quoted strings is triple-quoted string:
http://docs.python.org/reference/lex...lysis.html#id7

Often docstrings are expressed as three-quoted strings, because they
want to exceed a single line.
Glenn,
thanks for the clarification,
English is not my first language, nor is Python ;-)
I already updated the webpage.

cheers,
Stef

Hello All, I am creating a visual programming environment for python (similar to Matlab's simulink, but for python). For several reasons I have decided not to go with OGL. I am writing a wxOGL replacement library for wxPython. My first thought was to create an exact drop in replacement for OGL, but the more I look at the OGL api the more I hesitate to do it.

See: http://www.wxpython.org/quotes.php. especially: "wxPython is the best and most mature cross-platform GUI toolkit, given a number of constraints. The only reason wxPython isn't the standard Python GUI toolkit is that Tkinter was there first." - Guido van Rossum Guess, that answers my question, but isn't "Tkinter was there first" a very bad answer? :) It is kinda ugly too, so I wonder why it can't be replaced? Or maybe another GUI...

hello, gui_support is library for easy creation of GUI designs in wxPython.
