Why no help for print?
I wanted to find what the function print does, so I typed
and pressed tab.
I get "No object 'print' currently defined.
Why is that?
This is probably because print is a built-in Python command and not an object, and somehow the notebook won't do anything with it. I'm not sure there is anything that can be done to fix this.
For the record, in the command line, we get this:
sage: print? Type: builtin_function_or_method Base Class: <type 'builtin_function_or_method'> String Form: <built-in function print> Namespace: Python builtin Docstring: print(value, ..., sep=' ', end='n', file=sys.stdout) Prints the values to a stream, or to sys.stdout by default. Optional keyword arguments: file: a file-like object (stream); defaults to the current sys.stdout. sep: string inserted between values, default a space. end: string appended after the last value, default a newline.
