Pythonis a powerful computer programming language which is general-purposeinterpreted , object-oriented, and high-level language. Guido van Rossum inventedPython language during 1985- 1990. The source code of python is also easilyaccessible under the GNU General Public License (GPL).It has some resemblanceto Fortan which is one of the old programming language but python is much morepowerful than Fortan. Python permits us to use variables even without declaringthem that is it allows us to use the types implicitly and it depends uponindentation as a control structure. It is a open source software which meansfree software which is easily available. Python is preferred for mathematicalcalculations as using it we can write code instantly and has very easy syntaxwhich resembles to mathematical ideas mentioned in the mathematical literature.
It is most widely used by many web developers. Over the recent years, it is aleading language over the other programming languages like C, C++ and Java.Python has encountered drastic changes from its release and many add-onfeatures have been incorporated.FEATURESof various versions of python:Python1.0 had the module system of Module-3 and interacted with Amoeba OperatingSystemwith many functioning tools. In the year 2000, Python 2.
0 was invented withfeatures of garbage collector and Unicode Support. In the year 2008 Python 3.0was introduced which has a effective design that eludes duplicate modules. Nowdue to added features in Python 3.5 many companies are using it.
Python has several applications in the software development com-paniessuch as in web framework and applications, pro-totyping,gaming, graphic design applications, language development, etc.It provides the language a higher plethoraoverother programming languages used in the compamies.Advantagesof python are:· Extensive SupportLibraries : It provides abundant standard libraries that include the areas likeInternet , string operations and protocols. Many of the programming tasks arescripted into it which limits the length of the codes to be written in Python.· IntegrationFeature : Pythonintegrates the Enterprise Application Integration which makes it easy todevelop Web services by evoking COM orCOBRA components.· It has dynamic control capabilities as it calls directlythrough C, C++ or Java via Python.· Pythonalso operates XML and other mark-up languages as it can run on several advancedoperating systems through the same byte code.· Better ProgrammersProductivity : Python has object-oriented designs that improve two to ten foldof programmers productivity while using the languages like Java, VB, Perl, C,C++ and C.· Improved Productivity : With its powerful integrationfeatures, unit testing and enhanced control capabilities contribute towards theincreased speed for many applications and productivity applications.It is agreat alternative for building multi-protocol network applications.
