This is what I needed.  Basically I am a Java programmer who only read 
the 'Instant Python' tutorial 6 pages and found myself scripting away. 
 Of course when I run into subtleties I am looking totally in the wrong 
part of the documentation.  In Java usually 1file = 1 class so I keep 
looking for class constructor information.  But I see I should have been 
looking at module and package documentation.
