How Python Is Different From Other Languages

How Python Differs from Other Languages

  • Python is easy to learn. 
  • Python is good for starting out because the syntax of Python is very simple and understandable.
  • We can create GUI and CGI in a few lines of code. 
Who uses Python?
 
Python is used for developing many popular Web products 
  • Youtube.
  • Google.
  • Yahoo! map.
  • Shopzilla.
  • Ultraseek.
Comparing Python With Other Languages
 
Python is compared with the most liked programming languages such as Java, JavaScript, Tcl, Perl, Smalltalk, and C++ also. We will find Python is a good language for  development 
 
Python vs Java
 
 Point of Difference  Python  Java
Program run time Python program runs slower than Java Java program runs faster than python
Program development time Takes less time than Java Takes more time for developing the same program
Length of the code Python code is 3-5 times shorter than Java code Java code is longer than Python
Type Python is dynamically typed Java is not dynamically typed 
 
Python  vs JavaScript
 
 Point of Difference Python JavaScript
Object-based
A python is an object-based programming language      JavaScript is also an object-based scripting language
Type  Python can be used as a scripting language as well as a programming language JavaScript is only used for the scripting language 
 
Python vs Perl
 
Point of Difference  Python   Perl
Basic Python is very close to Perl  Perl is also very close to Python programming language
Programming methodologies Python supports common programming methodologies such as data structure and object-oriented programming Perl supports  common application-oriented tasks like  built-in regular expressions, file scanning and reports generating features
 
Python vs Tcl
 
 Point of Difference Python Tcl
Typed Python is a general-purpose language programming language  Tcl is application extension language and stand-alone programming language
Data type Python has a rich Datatype set for storing values Tcl stores all type values in a string mean TCL is weak in the data structure 
Program execution time Python program executes faster  Tcl program executes slower than python program
Modularity    Python supports module for writing large programs in a small module Tcl also has lack of module for writing a large program
 
Python vs Smalltalk
 
Point of Difference  Python Smalltalk
Typed Python is a dynamically typed language Smalltalk is not dynamically typed programming 
Standard library Python's library has more facilities for dealing with the internet and WWW realities such as email, HTML and FTP Smalltalk's standard library of collection data types is more refined
 
Python vs C++
 
Point of Difference Python C++
Length of code Python code is 5-10 time shorter than C++ code C++ code is 5-10 times longer than Python code
OOPS  Python is pure OOPS programming language       C++ is not a pure OOPS programming language
