cpython-withatomic / Misc / README

The branch '2.1' does not exist.
Python Misc subdirectory

This directory contains files that wouldn't fit in elsewhere, in
particular the UNIX manual page, an Emacs mode for Python source code,
and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (and their answers).  Some
documents are only of historic importance.
