Python is Interpreted
This means that it is processed at run time by the interpreter and you do not need to compile your program before executing it. This is similar to PERL and PHP.
Python is Interactive
This means that you can actually sit at a Python prompt and interact with the interpreter directly to write your programs.
Python is Object-Oriented
This means that Python supports Object-Oriented style or technique of programming that encapsulates code within objects.
Python is Beginner’s Language
