you have sources for those. just recompile (i'm sure you'll finde ports) for your system and use them
Not classes, so much as separate files.
I come from Java where the two are virtually synonymous, and the convention is one public class per file.
Also, I am aware of ports for shell commands, if that is what you are referring to, but I am not concerned about those. I am learning Python, which needn't be recompiled, and this is a simple project to help me learn as well as solve a practical problem.
No offense intended, but I would like an answer to the question asked, not a correction.
