31 Oct 2005 »pydoc
Here's an article encouraging you to use pydoc for online access to documentation. I think some parts of the article are specific to Windows, but the pydoc command does work in Linux --- I just tried "pydoc xml.dom.minidom" on one of the department's linux machines, and it did work. I also tried the "pydoc -p 9999" command and it does start an HTTP server with online documentation, as advertised.
