Python Reference Manual

This is a reference manual that describes the Python programming language. It is not meant as a tutorial. If you are using Python and wonder what the precise rules about a particular area of the language are, you should definitely be able to find them here.

There is currently only one Python implementation in widespread use (although alternate implementations exist), and its particular quirks are sometimes worth being mentioned, especially where the implementation imposes additional limitations. Therefore, you’ll find short “implementation notes'” sprinkled throughout the text. Each section has a number of subsections.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction
  • Lexical analysis
  • Data model
  • Execution model
  • Expressions
  • Simple statements
  • Compound statements
  • Top-level components
  • History and License
