Wasn't right on, but it started me searching thru Python.org, etc., etc. which I've been doing for the last coupla hours...getting more engrossed-and less sleep-all the while. Your comments really started the ball rolling.
Anyway, here's the right answer...from the command line:
$ pydoc modules | less
It's really that simple. From there, I can return to the python interpreter (>>>) and invoke the 'help' engines to exhibit the detail I want re any module. But now I am able to display, with pagenation, the modules that actually exist in my system (I figured that was more 'real time' than locating some catch-all list available on the web. BTW, the Vaults of Parnassus (sic) wasn't as much help as I hoped they would be-at least not for what I needed).
Thanks for time and input!
