Python Programming Language
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- It can (typically) be used to define Python Code (such as Python program or a Python library) with Python statements (for Python variables, Python data structures, and Python conditional statements) that can be interpreted by a Python Interpreter.
- It can (often) be an Interpreted Programming Language (unlike, Cython).
- It can (typically) include Python Standard Libraries.
- It can be parsed by a Python Parser (e.g. in a Python implementation, such as CPython).
- Python v1.
- Python v1.0 (~1994-01).
- Python v2.
- Python v3.

- Python is an interpreted high-level programming language for general-purpose programming. Created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991, Python has a design philosophy that emphasizes code readability, and a syntax that allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code, notably using significant whitespace. It provides constructs that enable clear programming on both small and large scales. Python features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. It supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative, functional and procedural, and has a large and comprehensive standard library. Python interpreters are available for many operating systems. CPython, the reference implementation of Python, is open source software  and has a community-based development model, as do nearly all of its variant implementations. CPython is managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation.

- Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code.
- Python runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, OS/2, Amiga, Palm Handhelds, and Nokia mobile phones. Python has also been ported to the Java and .NET virtual machines.
- Python is distributed under an OSI-approved open source license that makes it free to use, even for commercial products.
