Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language. Python's object-oriented design emphasizes code readability and aims to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.
Considerations[edit | edit source]
Python's ease of use comes at a cost of generally running 75 times slower than C and 50 times slower than C++. Compiling Python code with Cython can generally achieve up to a fifth of the speed of C++, but it cannot be optimized the same way as C++ unless the generated C code is modified.
