Python wrapper for C++ core

Hi All

Apologies in advance for the pretty basic question - but I can't seem
to find an answer anywhere else.

I am developing a fluid sim in C++ and have heard that many people use
Python in conjunction with C++ for this sort of thing (especially in
games dev).

What I can't understand why you would want to do this. Obviously the
core would be written in C++ (for my purposes anyway) so what parts
would be written in Python? What is the benefit, in this situation, of
using Python instead of C++?

thanks for your help
