Alternately/additionally, if you ask help(p), it will reveal-all about 
the "class" (of which p is an "instance") - including some answers to 
your second question (and perhaps others which logically follow-on).

If these terms are unfamiliar to you, then 'the manual' reference is 
(although from the code above, it would appear that you are looking at 
Python 2.n!). There are plenty of other tutorials available. 
Additionally, Coursera has announced a course starting this week 
(U.Michigan), in Python and its classes - which can be audited for $free 
or used to obtain some sort of certification...
