What is PYTHON?

Share:

An interpreted, object-oriented programming language developed by Guido van Rossum. It is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme, or Java.

The name comes from one of van Rossum’s favorite television shows, Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Python is very portable since Python interpreters are available for most operating system platforms.

Although Python is copyrighted, the source code is open source, and unlike GNU software, it can be commercially re-sold.

Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax. It has modules, classes, exceptions, very high-level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing. There are interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk, Mac, MFC).

New built-in modules are easily written in C or C++. Python is also usable as an extension language for applications that need a programmable interface.

The Python implementation is portable: it runs on many brands of UNIX, on Windows, OS/2, Mac, Amiga, and many other platforms.
