Perl's LWP to Python??


Hi
I read about how perl can use LWP to retrieve data from the internet, I was wondering if there is an equivalent in python.
Thanks
Chris

Hi again
I'm a noob so I'm sorry if this question seems stupid, but I was wondering if you can give me a link that shows me what the module/library of wwwlib does in python, cause I can't find it. Just to let you know, I'm trying to start programming a web spider in python, was wondering if you have any good books or guides that teach me how to.
Thanks
Chris
