Python is a general-purpose programming language of exceptional power and readability. By harmoniously integrating concepts from other languages such as C, C++, perl, Smalltalk, Java, and Tcl together with its own original features, it has grown in popularity in the past few years and has proven itself in a wide variety of application areas.
