About Python

Python is a powerful object oriented programming language that is
developed and maintained by a global community of Open Source
contributors, under the oversight of the Python Software Foundation.
Python's unique blend of simplicity and power excels in a wide range of
software development tasks, including the construction of web
applications, complex integrated business solutions, and large desktop
applications. Python is often characterized as an agile language that
promotes speedy development and includes a unit-testing framework for
building more robust applications.

Python is a compelling alternative to proprietary development platforms
based on Java, C#, and other languages. Powerful web development
platforms such as Zope, Plone, Webware, and Quixote; GUI
development toolkits wxPython,
PyGTK, and PyQT, and
extensive standard library support for internet services development
and integration make Python an excellent broad-based development
platform.

Companies using Python include Google, Microsoft, Industrial Light
& Magic, The New York Stock Exchange, RealNetworks, Philips,
Hewlett Packard, Rackspace, RedHat, NASA, Disney, and AstraZeneca.

Key features of Python include:

  • Object orientation, modular name spaces, exceptions, and multi-threading
  • High-level dynamic data typing and very late binding
  • Powerful support for introspection and meta-classes
  • Tight integration with C, C++, and Java modules
  • May be compiled to Java byte code for use in any JVM
  • String and regular expression processing
  • Extensive XML and web services support
  • HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP, IMAP, NNTP, telnet, and other IP protocols
  • HTML, MIME, base64, binhex, uuencode, and other internet data handling
  • GUI development and multimedia services
  • Unit testing, profiling, and documentation generation
  • Available third party modules for database access, math, 3D modeling,
    image processing, LDAP, WebDAV, jabber, MIDI, and much more

Python runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix, OS/2, WinCE,
and many other operating systems. Full source code is available for the
language and associated standard libraries.
