In this article, I will talk about programming languages. In this article, I will also talk about the following topics:
I will first talk about Python. It is a simple, powerful high-level language that is used for general-purpose programming. It has often been described as a “glue” language because it can be used to easily combine existing components and modules written in other languages.
Python is generally intended to be a very readable language. Its formatting is visually appealing, and its code can be easily read by anyone who has an understanding of programming, although the syntax of the language is slightly unusual in some respects.
The Python interpreter can also act as a command line interface for applications that need a programmable interface. This capability is one of Python’s most often used applications, but it does not come as standard with the language.
Python was designed to be easily extensible. The core interpreter is written in C, but is accessible to programmers through an extensive set of extensions written in Python itself. These modules allow programmers to access many old programs and protocols, as well as to write their own programs using the same interfaces.
There are now thousands of modules available on the Internet. Many of these are back-ports of CPython extensions to older versions of the language or to obsolete platforms, but many others are new modules that have been developed specifically for the scripting environment. Fewer than half of these modules are compatible with the latest version of Python, though most are backwards compatible with versions up to 2.2.
