    in for loops like the following:

    word='abcade'

    for letter in word:
    print letter


    Is it possible to get the position of letter for any iteration through
    the loop?

    so for examlpe letter=='a', and I want to know if it is the first or
    second 'a' in 'abcade'.

    can i do this by looking at a property of letter?
