Strength of Python over other languages, Python Features over the other languages

How Is Python Supported?

Python is an open source programming language, It is a very powerful language to develop any kind of application like web application, mobile application, web services, windows application etc.

All the Operating system supports the python and any user whether he/she is used any of the O/S can write program on any O/S and can be run easily.

What Are Python’s Technical Strengths?

Naturally, this is a developer’s question. The Pythons Technical Strength are explained below

It’s Object-Oriented

Python is an object-oriented language, and as like other OOP's supported languages, Its class model supports advanced notions such as polymorphism, operator overloading, and multiple inheritance but, in the context of Python’s simple syntax and typing, OOP is remarkably easy to apply. In fact, if you don’t know about what are these terms, you’ll find they are much easier to learn with Python than with just about any other OOP's supported languages like C++, Java, C# etc available.

Python’s OOP's nature makes it ideal as a scripting tool for object-oriented systems languages such as C++, Java and C#. Much like C++, Python supports both procedural and object-oriented programming models. You can work with OOP and without OOP in Python

It’s Free

Python is completely free to use and distribute. As with other open source software, such as Tcl, Perl, Linux, and Apache, PHP, MySQL etc. You don't need to purchase any software to program with Python because its freely available for Download from its official site http://python.org.

The very important aspect is you can download the complete source code of python and you can modify it according to your need.

It’s Portable

The standard implementation of Python is written in portable ANSI C,and the Python programs can be execute on any platform easily. For example, Python programs run today on everything from PDAs to supercomputers. Here is a list where, Python is available on:

• Linux and Unix systems.
• Real-time systems such as VxWorks.
• Mac OS (both OS X and Classic).
• Cray supercomputers and IBM mainframes.
• Microsoft Windows and DOS (all modern flavors).
• Cell phones running Symbian OS and Windows Mobile.
• BeOS, OS/2, VMS, and QNX.
• Gaming consoles and iPods.
• PDAs running Palm OS, PocketPC, and Linux.
• Mac OS (both OS X and Classic).
• And more.

Python programs are automatically compiled to portable byte code, which runs the

same on any platform with a compatible version of Python installed

It’s Powerful

Python is an interpreted language but it strong tool set makes it very powerful language, The Python has the feature of scripting languages as well as the compiled languages also so these features makes it very powerful language to develop large scale of product with high functionality.

Dynamic typing

Python is a loosely typed language and there are no data types and no need to provide the range of the value into any of the value template.

The Python variable store any length of the value into it because of the Dynamic type nature of Python language.

Automatic memory management

Python is a OOP's supported language and there is a feature called "Garbage Collection" to automatically deallocates  the unused objects from the memory and free the memory for further storing of objects.

Built-in object types

Python provides commonly used data structures such as lists, dictionaries, tuples and

strings for working with arrays, dynamic arrays, and combination of characters, as you’ll see, they’re both flexible and easy to use. The Python's built-in objects can grow and shrink according to the need.

Built-in tools

Python provides the large collection of built-in library function and objects, To process all those object types and functions, Python comes with powerful and standard operations, including concatenation (joining collections), slicing (extracting sections),

sorting, mapping, and more.

Library utilities

If you want to use a specific task with your program like you want to use the Networking in your program for connect to the server you need to import the some library classes which is provided by the Python's large Library list.

Third-party utilities

Python is an Open Source language and it supports the large scale of third party utilities for communicate with the other software's or include any widget or any third party software to your program then the python provide the third party support for any kind of this work. 

It’s Mixable

Python program can be mixed with the C, C++ & Java, and the Python provides the API for mixing the other programming languages, If we use the Python with C it called the "Cython" and if we will use the Python with Java then it called the "Jython".

It’s Easy to Use

To run a Python program, you simply type it and run it. There are no compile and linking steps, Python also provide the large scale of built-in library function for minimizing the code of a program.

Python programs are very simple, easy to learn and very small as compare to other programming languages like C, C++, java etc.
Program written in Python is more small then program written in C, C++ or java.

It’s Easy to Learn

If you have experience of programming in any other programming languages then you can easily learn Python very quickly in less then 1 week and you don't need specify any starting point of a Python program as like the C, every C program should written inside the main function.
