Where to search?

  • If you're looking for a particular module or a module to do a particular thing, use the Python Package Index

  • If you have a problem installing or using Python, the best place to start is the FAQ (listed above), followed by the newsgroups, and then the SIG archives. If you get a specific error message that you don't understand, try entering the entire error message (in double quotes is usually best) as a query, but leaving out any obviously variable parts (like a pathname on your system or a module name you just entered).
