Python isn't Turing-complete, right?
Python seems pretty good in many ways; without more precise
specifications of requirements, it is indeed difficult to assess the
preferability of any given language.
- Python appears pretty easy to embed, as well as easy to embed C code
- Perl is probably more popular, and has vast libraries of "modules,"
possibly more than are available for Python, but the schemes for
embedding compiled code into Perl and vice-versa seem somewhat more
- TCL was designed with inter-embeddability in mind, so it might be a
- There are Scheme implementations designed with embedding in mind too.
I have stopped reading Stephen King novels. Now I just read C code
