Python is "Turing complete," which means it is a general-purpose
programming language. Generally speaking, this means you can do
anything with it that you can do with any other programming language.
Being a higher-level language, Python is often chosen over other
languages because it is faster to do many things in Python.
You could also create another programming language with Python. In
fact, another general-purpose programming language (C) was used to
Python makes many things easy. For many tasks, Python saves you a lot
of time. It is a good general-purpose tool to know how to use well. It
is a good beginner's language, as it makes many of the annoying things
about programs non-issues.
