This library reference manual documents Python's extensions for the Macintosh. It should be used in conjunction with the Python Library Reference, which documents the standard library and built-in types.

This manual assumes basic knowledge about the Python language. For an informal introduction to Python, see the Python Tutorial; the Python Reference Manual remains the highest authority on syntactic and semantic questions. Finally, the manual entitled Extending and Embedding the Python Interpreter describes how to add new extensions to Python and how to embed it in other applications.
