reveals that that function is calendar.month(). Python's built-in help
is great (and works fine in the script console) - you can call help() on
any Python object to display its docstring, eg:
The type() function is also very useful.
I strongly suggest you become familiar with the difference between
returning a value and printing it to the console. It's easier to tell
which is which on Python's built-in interactive console - you can get it
by running `python' on the command line - but you can't use Scribus's
Python APIs from there. In the Scribus console, if you're unsure, run
just the command you're wondering about and assign its return value to a
variable. If it prints something, you know it's actually writing to
stdout; if instead nothing is printed and the variable takes on a value,
you know it's returning the data.
