What is Python?
Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented scripting language
with clean syntax and clean semantics. It falls in the same language space as
PERL and TCL.
Python supports modules, classes, exceptions and dynamic typing. It
is also very easy to extend both using extension modules written in C or
C++, and from within Python itself. Python can also be embedded in applications
which wish to offer some kind of programmability to the end user.
Python is copyrighted but is distributed under a generous license.
Take a look at the Python home page
for more information on Python and its capabilities.
