Functional Programming with Python



Python is a general-purpose, very high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes programmer productivity and code readability. Python's core syntax and semantics are minimalist, while the standard library is large and comprehensive.

Python supports multiple programming paradigms (primarily object oriented, functional, and imperative), and features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management; similar to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, and Tcl.

Python was first released by Guido van Rossum in 1991. The language has an open, community-based development model managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation. While various parts of the language have formal specifications and standards, the language as a whole is not formally specified. The de facto standard for the language is the CPython implementation.
