Python is a popular general-purpose computer programming language, which is intended for the development of various apps, including CGI scripts and web software. What makes it popular with computer programmers is that it offers really clear syntax and it works with modules - pieces of code which include some subroutines and execute specific tasks. Employing modules can help you save a considerable amount of time and effort because you can just "call" a module inside your script, instead of writing all of the program code for the same attribute. Python is used for a variety of applications for example online games, cms, database control systems, RSS readers, text and data processors and many others. Any Python-based script can be included in a site that is written in another computer programming language.
