What are the main problems that Python really has an advantage at solving? I haven't tried using this one but I would like to learn it too. Can anyone give us a sample code and tell what the code does?

It is a very old language. I'm not sure it is used to often anymore except for on servers with older OSes.

Oh ok, thanks for the reply. I should have read more about Python's history. Anyway, I would like also try this kind of software.

Anyone who has used this, can you please tell us the advantages of using this software?

Python isn't software, its a language. So there are no real advantages to using it more so than any other language.
if you know Python well, then its a great idea to use it.
But its not a language I would go and learn just for the sake of it.

You get me thinking what kind of program is Python now. You said its not a software and then in the end you said its not a language.

Anyway, I'm just like you, trying to test any program for the sake of learning.

haha, I think he means python is not software it is a language and he just confused the ending there.

I think you, encoder, are talking about the IDE when you say software, correct?

If I were you I would spend my time learning another language. One that is used more often today.
