Python is an interpreted high-level programming language for general-purpose programming that emphasizes code readability. It provides constructs that enable clear programming of both small and large scale software applications. Python features a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. The Python language supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, functional, and procedural, and has a large and comprehensive runtime library.
This OpenVMS port of Python includes the core binary distribution and several extensions, including modules for web application development, a simple interface to the Oracle RDB database, and various other useful extensions(listed below). It is anticipated that additional modules will be included in future releases.
- VSI OpenVMS Version 8.4-1H1 I64 or higher.
- The software must be installed on an ODS-5 enabled disk (the installation will fail if this requirement is not met).
- VSI TCP/IP or HPE TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS It has not been verified whether the kit works with the MultiNet TCP/IP stack, but there is a good chance that it will.
