The only two (or perhaps one and a half) languages you used as reference
were C and C++. Which you said 'Like in C, C++, etc, Python too is
strongly typed'. What has PHP got to do with it? How does PHP's typing
have anything to do with Python's?
Typing in C and C++ is different to Python.
int c = 0;
c = "fred";
No can do in C and C++.
c = 0
c = "fred"
No problem in Python.
So just how is Python strongly typed 'like in C, C++, etc'?
