We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

issubclass

issubclass(class, classinfo)

Returns true if class is a subclass (direct or indirect) of classinfo. A class is considered a subclass of itself. classinfo may be a tuple of class objects, in which case every entry in classinfo will be checked. In any other case, a TypeError exception is raised.

Changed in version 2.3: Support for a tuple of type information was added.
