Description

Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development.

Python in CIAO

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.
