    i'm trying to lookup on the detail of language Python's “lambdaâ€
    function feature. I've seen it before, but today i need to read about
    it again since i'm writing. I quickly went to the index page:
    http://python.org/doc/2.4.1/lib/genindex.html
    but all i got is a LambdaType.

    i'm thinking, maybe built-in functions are not listed there. Lo, but
    map() and friends are there. O, maybe i'm confused and “lambda†is
    actually a keyword by this particular language's feelings, but Lo,
    “while†is certainly a keyword but it is there.

    **** the Python liers and ignorant fuckheads. Motherfucking don't know
    shit and yet lying thru their teeth with fanfare.

    I knew I shouldn't feed the troll, but anyway.

    'lambda' is a keyword. So there's no doubt looking in LIBRARY Reference
    and not finding it.
    There exists a document called LANGUAGE Reference, with description of
    'lambda' keyword. http://python.org/doc/2.4.1/ref/lambdas.html.
    ('while' statement is also documented in Language Reference.)


    So to quote from Xah Lee:
    > **** the [...] ignorant fuckheads. Motherfucking don't know
    > shit and yet lying thru their teeth [...].



    You can't complain about lacks of knowledge if you don't know where to
    look.
    BTW, you post to the wrong group.

    No, I think c.l.l is exactly the place to discuss how to play many trumpets
    through one set of teeth.

    In fact, I have a box of trumpets lying around somewhere...

    Open wide, Xah!
