Python overview

Python is an extremely versatile, dynamic, interpreted, and general-purpose language. It is one of the most popular and in-demand languages today. Python supports multiple programming techniques, including procedural, object-oriented, and functional programming.

Features:
  • Python is an excellent option for beginner-level developers.
  • Python programming on Mac is easy. Since it is based on a high-level language, you don't need to remember the system architecture, nor to manage the memory.
  • Python for Mac is developer-friendly. It uses an elegant and simple syntax that is easy-to-code and easy-to-read.
  • You can enjoy smooth programming on your Macbook with a Python's interactive mode that allows you to easily test short snippets of code and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
  • Python is a dynamically typed language. It means that you don't need to declare the type of variable because it is decided at run time, not in advance.

What’s new in version 3.11.1

Updated on Dec 07 2022

  • gh-99886: Fix a crash when an object which does not have a dictionary frees its instance values.
  • gh-99891: Fix a bug in the tokenizer that could cause infinite recursion when showing syntax warnings that happen in the first line of the source. Patch by Pablo Galindo
  • gh-99729: Fix an issue that could cause frames to be visible to Python code as they are being torn down, possibly leading to memory corruption or hard crashes of the interpreter.
  • gh-99578: Fix a reference bug in _imp.create_builtin() after the creation of the first sub-interpreter for modules builtins and sys. Patch by Victor Stinner.
  • gh-99581: Fixed a bug that was causing a buffer overflow if the tokenizer copies a line missing the newline caracter from a file that is as long as the available tokenizer buffer. Patch by Pablo galindo

Indentation thing is not a big deal - how else will the interpreter be able to work. For all the brace lovers maybe they should implement 2 modes I dunno...but once you get into it not having braces all over the place makes for some tidy reading code! I would take this as an overhead to have no braces any day of the week.

"One of the worst "features" of Python is that indentation is part of the syntax." So, do you indent your code in other languages? Of course you do; it's one of the first things any decent programmer learns to do. Given that, what's the problem? All it does is help keep the code readable.

Best language ever! I was in an, umm, less than sober state of mind last night and decided I needed a script to change a list of URLs into a list of HTML links. It worked perfectly the first time. I can't think of another language I could have done it in that would have worked as well. If you have any interest in programming whatsoever, learn python. You'll be a better programmer in any language because of it.
