Python is a very popular general-purpose computer programming language, that is designed for the creation of various applications, for instance CGI scripts plus web software. What causes it to be preferred by programmers is that it provides really clear syntax and it works with modules - pieces of program code which include some subroutines and perform certain tasks. Employing modules can save you considerable time and efforts due to the fact that you are able to just "call" some module inside your script, instead of writing all the code for that feature. Python is employed for a number of software programs such as online games, content management systems, database management systems, RSS readers, text and data processors and many more. Every Python-based script can be implemented in a site that's created in a different programming language.
