    In the Windows Help version of the docs, enter print in the index tab
    and print builtin function is at the top. Same is true of the online
    index. (There are only three 'print' entries. There is a duplicate for
    the builtin and one for the fixer. Moral: look for things that would be
    indexed in the index. Searching for a word in text, especially a common
    one like print, brings in lots of junk.
