whatis arg

Prints the information argument which can be a Python expression.

When possible, we give information about:

  • type of argument
  • doc string for the argument (if a module, class, or function)
  • comments around the definition of the argument (module)
  • the module it was defined in
  • where the argument was defined

We get this most of this information via the inspect module.
