Annotation of pkgsrc/lang/python27/DESCR, Revision 18.104.22.168
1.1 obache 1: Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
2: programming language that combines remarkable power with
3: very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
4: Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
5: Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
6: types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
7: Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
8: of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.
10: Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
11: written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
12: dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
13: sion language for existing applications. See the internal
14: documentation for hints.
