OK...
I've been told that Both Fortran and Python are easy to read, and are
quite useful in creating scientific apps for the number crunching, but
then Python is a tad slower than Fortran because of its a high level
language nature, so what are the advantages of using Python for
creating number crunching apps over Fortran??
Thanks
