Learn to download and install Python Script
For coding Python into your computer, you are required to download and install Python. In this blog, I will be providing a detailed procedure for downloading and installing Python on your PC.
What is Python?
Python is a well known general-purpose programming language used for a wide variety of applications. This consists of high-level data structures, dynamic typing, dynamic binding, and other features that make it useful for complex application development and for scripting or “glue code” connecting components together.
What is Python Scripting?
A python scripting language is a programming language that uses an Interpreter to translate its source code. Here, the interpreter reads and operates each line of code one at a time, just like a SCRIPT for a play or a drama which then derives the term “scripting language”. In simplifying words, python scripting is an environment set to run python code on the computer.
