Introduction to Python programming - Python

Python is a general-purpose high-level programming language. High-level programming language: User friendly programming languages, close to human language, easy to understand for human. Java and Ruby programming languages are also high-level programming langauges. Python claims to "remarkable power with very clear syntax". Its use of indentation as block delimiters is unusual among popular programming languages. Python supports multiple programming paradigms (primarily object oriented, imperative, and functional) and features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language.

Python is cross-platform language.(Used in many Operating systems, for example Mobiles, Computers, Windows, Linux etc)

Like every file has extension to show its related files for example java has .jar extension, the same way Python also has .py, .pyc, .pyo extensions.

The use of Python is spreading widely, It is being used on popular web sites like Google, Yahoo, MSN, in operating systems Apple MAC, Linux, Windows and many other web applications.

Python has easy coding with less work and more output unlike java and other programming languages. (We need to write less code to make a program here in Python unlike other languages like C programming.)
