'module' has no attribute 'urlencode'

When I try to follow the Python Wiki's example related to URL encoding:

    >>> import urllib
    >>> params = urllib.urlencode({'spam': 1, 'eggs': 2, 'bacon': 0})
    >>> f = urllib.urlopen("http://www.musi-cal.com/cgi-bin/query", params)
    >>> print f.read()

An error is raised on the second line:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'urlencode'

What am I missing?

urllib has been split up in Python 3. The urllib.urlencode() function is now urllib.parse.urlencode(), and the urllib.urlopen() function is now urllib.request.urlopen().
