Not that one!

Sure, I do mean the python programming language..

AmigaPython Homepage

It's actually linked at python.org but for some reason they have it listed under AROS, perhaps one of us should drop them a note and let them know that AmigaPython and PyAROS are for different platforms.

Python is in the top ten most used programming languages ​​in the world.

If this is the last version AmigaPyrhon for OS3.x, he is not on Aminet. This version is 2.3.3. Port is from year 2004. Here are the sites:

http://www.monkeyhouse.eclipse.co.uk/amiga/python/

Python is not good for the classic Amiga. For simple programs, but is sufficient.
Python need 2 MB RAM .

So, that makes it good, then? I didn't know that how much something is used determined it's quality.

Thorham:It is difficult to assess the time about how Python is slower, if you understand it. I am an amateur programmer in Python and programs only in Python. One algorithm (convert text to a different character set in the range of 2000 lines) that my PC did in 0.6 seconds - the Amiga, if I remember correctly, I had set the A1200 performance done in 32 seconds. But it was PC vs. Amiga. I know that the speed penalty is extreme. He's also using Python under OS3.x at your own risk! .

Here is a small sample of simple animation, first is unleashed under emulation without a speed penalty (A3000 would have already had too handle, A4000 absolutely no problems and then give power to the A1200). Text is Czech.

Amiga was the best computer user, because it was and is a good computer. It is true that the quantity does not determine quality, but success did not come about Python completely without merit as Amiga.

Python is slow for algorithms with tight loops. A good example would be performing gamma correction on a 24 bit BMP file. Then again, all interpreted languages are slow for this kind of thing.

That's all I was saying, namely that although Python might be good, it's not because of the number of users.

Python is not a good language for the Amiga. I'm never going to say anything else. I only play with it. Can I do a text game. Actually, I'm doing it already slowly. On the Amiga 1200 it will be a lot of slowly retro. The text in the game using the Workbench with proportional font. I have to deal with a carriage return to the position of the text itself. These are extra calculations and display the text on the bare Amiga is not the fastest. Needless to perform any gamma correction to 24 bit BMP file .
