> How is Python like C/C++?
They are all general purpose programming languages.
C/C++ programs will usually run faster but require
that you write about 3 times as many lines of code
to achieve the same end.
C/C++ programs are compiled and usually easier to distribute but will only
work on the platform they were compiled for. Python willl usually work on
any platform with an interpreter installed.
> Can it do everything C/C++ can do?
It can also do things that C/C++ can't do.
