Python is a high-level, object-oriented, strongly-typed programming language
with garbage collection, byte-code compilation, dynamic types, and syntax
that includes OOP, procedural and functional styles.
It is an excellent glue language for libraries written in C, C++, Fortran,
Java and CLR (dot-Net). It is also good for scripting. But that doesn't
mean it is only a scripting language.
Calling Python a scripting language is like calling an iPad "a clock", just
because it has a clock app. Yes, you can use your iPad to tell the time,
and that makes it a clock. But it's not *just* a clock, and Python is not
*just* a scripting language.
