[SOLVED] List of Python commands

Just wondering where I can get a full list of Python (3.7.4) commands as I’m struggling to find a list anywhere, maybe I’m looking in the wrong place(s) or not using the correct search term(s).


The problem is that you’re asking an meaningless question, python isn’t a bunch of commands it’s an object oriented programming language.

I don’t mean to sound like I’m being awkward, but this really is one of those times when “RTFM” makes a lot of sense :wink:

Even if it’s only to learn what questions to ask the python pro’s … not that I’d likely be able to answer anyway, I’m only scratching the surface of python myself (I can make sense of what some of it is doing when I see it, but that’s about it).

At a python shell prompt (not a bash prompt)>>>


and say>>>


for example might help a little (if you can read that kinda gibberish) … but the manual and online tutorials are where you’ll find the most help if you wanna learn to program in python.

I know exactly what you’re saying.
What I was looking for was something like a list of the ‘commands’ in a sort of index so I could see all of them in one place, not just throughout a manual, which does not cover every single one.

Found out how to get a list of python keywords…
In IDLE, enter the following;

import keyword


[‘False’, ‘None’, ‘True’, ‘and’, ‘as’, ‘assert’, ‘async’, ‘await’, ‘break’, ‘class’, ‘continue’, ‘def’, ‘del’, ‘elif’, ‘else’, ‘except’, ‘finally’, ‘for’, ‘from’, ‘global’, ‘if’, ‘import’, ‘in’, ‘is’, ‘lambda’, ‘nonlocal’, ‘not’, ‘or’, ‘pass’, ‘raise’, ‘return’, ‘try’, ‘while’, ‘with’, ‘yield’]
