Hi,
Sorry simple question. New to Python from a Java background.

In Java I could just check an objects Javadoc API to see what I could do with in it. I am using Google's spreadsheet python library. There's lots of useful objects but how or where do I check to see what I can do with say a GetCellsFeed? What APIs can I call on it? Similarly for every entry in a Cells feed?

Thanks

In Java, there is only JavaDoc if someone writes it. You could generate it yourself, but that would be the same info as just looking at the code. I'm guessing you've already read Google's Spreadsheet docs. Beyond taht, I think you are going to have to read the Python code. The good thing is Python isn't compiled so you have the code by definition.

Thanks Jeanne. Yeah I read that. It'smore tutorials.

Ok, I finally found some API style doc.

For example SpreadsheetService is here...
