Type functions: Learning the Python 3 Standard Library
Type functions: Learning the Python 3 Standard Library

Learn the difference between type and instance as well as how to use the type() and isinstance() functions. Type() returns the type of one given input while isinstance() has two inputs and returns true or false whether or not the first input is an instance of the second input. Isinstance() accounts for some things that type() does not - so it is often better to use in situations that involve inheritance.
