Batteries Included

You now know most of the basic Python language. While the core language is powerful in itself, Python gives you more tools to play with. A standard installation includes a set of modules called the standard library. You have already seen some of them (math and cmath, which contain mathematical functions for real and complex numbers, for example), but there are many more. This chapter shows you a bit about how modules work, and how to explore them and learn what they have to offer. Then the chapter offers an overview of the standard library, focusing on a few selected useful modules.
