I'm new to geoprocessing with Python (but with a basic knowledge of Python) and have been trying to loop through a shapefile to perform analysis on each polygon in the shapefile.  I have seen references to looping through directories. etc. but haven't been able to translate them to working with polygons within a shapefile.
