Why Python Sucks

Say, I want to know the semantics of a built-in function. In Perl, I type in perldoc -f <function-name>.

In Python, I have to go searching on the web, and the best thing I can come up with is a third-party HOWTO, which amounts to a tutorial on how the function works, rather than a quick, fifteen-second reference on calling semantics.

Dang.
