What is Python? Python is a scripting language. His creator guide Oban boson. Situated between C and shell. Python is object based. An object is a part of code that has internal data which differentiates it from other objects of the same class.

It has functions or methods which make it possible to modify it. Other object based programming languages are Java and c++. It is interpreted, we cannot command interactively, such as basic logo, MATLAB and show. It is modular, and it's easy to import and create new modules. There are many libraries available, for example, web, XML, BD, audio, image and others. All you need to do is find the right one.

Python is portable. Just about all platforms are supported. Python is installed automatically on Linux and Mac OSX. It has a BS The license free software documentation is probably complete because the language is under construction, the smart comparison, Python versus C or c++, Python has at least 10 times fewer lines of code than C and c++. There's no need to compile. Python is slower, but at the same time, it is easily expandable.

Python versus Java. There's less lines of code with Java. And with JSON, it's Java and Python, Python versus bash, ch and Perl. Python is more structured, and therefore more readable. Python versus MATLAB. Python is more readable and it has more general libraries.

Python is not yet the same functionality as MATLAB as it specializes in libraries and plots. There's some very promising projects, how to launch Python and ideally, ideally, he opened the window in which you type and execute the Python commands. There are two operators modes. The first one is interactive, our EPL read eval print loop. The second one is script to file. Click New Window to open a window where you can write a program.
