Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, and high-level programming language. It was created by Guido van Rossum during 1985- 1990. Like Perl, Python source code is also available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This tutorial gives enough understanding on Python programming language.
Python is Interpreted
Python is processed at runtime by the interpreter. You do not need to compile your program before executing it. This is similar to PERL and PHP.
Python is Interactive
You can actually sit at a Python prompt and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
Python is Object-Oriented
Python supports Object-Oriented style or technique of programming that encapsulates code within objects.
Python is Beginner Friendly
Python is a great language for the beginner-level programmers and supports the development of a wide range of applications from simple text processing to WWW browsers to games.
This tutorial is designed for software programmers who need to learn Python programming language from scratch.
