Python programming

Python is an interpreted, interactive programming language created by Guido van Rossum in 1990. Python is fully dynamically typed and uses automatic memory management; it is thus similar to Tcl, Perl, Scheme, and Ruby. Python is developed as an open source project, managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation. Python 2.4.1 was released on March 30, 2005.
