Does Python have intellisense or something similar?

Accessing help via the command prompt is convenient but not very easy. Plus the output, as exemplified by help(str.rjust) can be really messy.

The Python shell will give options when you press tab twice. Most editors have some sort of suggestion engine built in that'll offer you options for autocompletion.
