Python is the worst programming language used nowadays
- No pointers.
- No true multithreading
- No ternary operators (no, ifes in one line are not ternary operators)
- No switch (if else if else if else if else if else if…)
- No constants
- It is a true miracle that Python has lambdas. (BTW you cannot give statements to a lambda. Which makes them very useless.)
- no goto (a well used goto is better than a horrible code)
Python (Not these days) have two main versions 2.7 and 3.x. Syntax are quite different, for example:
print "Hello, I'm using a stupid programming language\n" # Python 2.7 print ("Hello, I'm using a stupid programming language\n") # Python 3.x
That means a python 2.7 code don’t run on a python3 interpreter, and python 3.0 don’t run on a python2.7 interpreter.
Which is fine, but Python mantained python 2.7 for so long. It ended support on 2020 and should not be used anymore. But some programmers do not want to make the change.
What the hell is a __main__?
