dir?
obj.__doc__ ?

When I try the latter recommendation above w/numpy arrays, I get:

In [1]: import numpy as N

In [2]: a = N.array([1,2,3])

In [3]: a.__doc__?
Type:           NoneType
Base Class:     <type 'NoneType'>
String Form:    None
Namespace:      Interactive
Docstring:
     <no docstring>


Did you have something else in mind?

Thx,

--b
