help()function launches Python’s help system. Without an argument,
help()starts an interactive session. With a string argument,
help(name)looks up the name and prints a help page to the shell. With a non-string argument,
help(object)prints a help page on object.
>>> help(list) # Prints the documentation of list >>> help(dict) # Prints the documentation of dict >>> help(int) # Prints the documentation of int >>> help('help') # Prints the documentation of help() >>> help() # Opens an interactive "help" session
