I am currently under some time constraints and am looking for a quick rundown of how to type out a general python script. a link would be great or anyone who wants to help by typing a quick overview out here. I am a rookie at best with python meaning very minimal to no experience. I need to basically make a script for the buffer_analysis tool and I do not know how to begin with this other then what esri provides for the tool help which is nice, but i need the whole thing, for the python command line. I know I need to include something along the lines of the "import os" command, and I am sure I will need some other commands as well. please help if you can. Thank you.
