I agree with others who responded to you.  You acknowledge that you are new to Python, yet you claimed to know better than Python experts.  You claim you want an answer and yet you purposefully ignored their response because it didn?t match what you wanted to hear.  You have time to repeatedly vilify everyone connected with Python, but you have no time to read the well written documentation. 

I have no more time to spend on such a ungrateful person.  I?m blocking all messages from you.
