a brief introduction of python, Basic Computer Science

Python is an interpreted, high-level, interactive and object oriented-scripting language.
Python was designed to be extremely readable which uses English keywords commonly where as other languages use punctuation and it has smaller amount syntactical constructions than some other languages.
• Python is interpreted: it means that it is processed at runtime by the interpreter and you do not require compiling your program before executing it. This is like PERL and PHP.
• Python is Interactive: it means that you can really sit at a Python prompt and communicate with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
• Python is Object-Oriented: This means that Python maintains Object-Oriented style or technique of programming that encapsulates code within objects.
• Python is Beginner''s Language: Python is a vast language for the beginner programmers and holds the development of a wide range of applications, from simple text processing to WWW browsers to games.
History of Python:
Python was produced by Guido van Rossum in the delayed eighties and early on nineties at the National Research Institute for Computer Science and Mathematics in the Netherlands.
Python is derivative of many other languages, as well as ABC, Modula-3, C, Algol-68, C++, SmallTalk, and UNIX shell and other scripting languages.
Python is copyrighted, similar to Perl; Python source code is now accessible under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Python is now upholding by a core expansion team at the institute, although Guido van Rossum still holds a very important role in directing its progress.
