Page Index[edit]


The Python interpreter has a number of functions and types built into it that are always available. This means that you don't have to import anything so that you can access them. Some of the built-in functions are so powerful, simple, common or useful, such as print() that it's difficult to imagine a block of code without them. As we have advanced through this course, we've seen and used many built-in functions (bin(), chr(), complex(), dict(), format(), hex(), input()) perhaps without realizing that they have their own place and classification in the Python documentation.
