	Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
	programming language that combines remarkable power with
	very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
	Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
	Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
	types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
	Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
	of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.

	Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
	written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
	dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
	sion language for existing applications. See the internal
	documentation for hints.
