To start Python, you just need to type Python in your terminal command line and after that press enter.
The $ sign denotes the start of a terminal command line, and then the # sign denotes a comment. Python ignores anything written on the right side of # sign on a given line.
Using the Interpreter
- In addition to being a programming language, Python is also an interpreter. It reads other Python programs and commands, and executes them.
- Python programs are compiled automatically before being scanned by the interpreter. The hidden scanning process makes Python faster than a pure interpreter.
- Once you’re inside Python, you can type commands at your own will.
- Quantities stored in memory are not displayed by default
- If the quantity is stored in memory, typing its name will display it.
- To exit the interpreter, you need to press [Ctrl + D]
