Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language
Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools and comes with extensive standard libraries. A list of key software features is available on the About Python webpage.
Refer to the Python Programming Language website for more information.
The CIAO software offers both Python and S-Lang ("ahelp slang") as user scripting environments. Both software packages are distributed with CIAO, but users may opt to run their own custom installation instead; see "ahelp ciaorc" for information on how to change the Python version that is being used.
For more information, refer to the Scripting in CIAO webpages.
