Python Syntax

Python language syntax is very easy to learn.

Comparison of Python syntax with other programming languages

  • To write your python code, you do not need to wrap it inside any tags. You can create a python file with .py extension and start writing your python code.
  • In some other programming languages we use semicolons (;) : to represent end of command. In python a new line represents the end of command so no need for semicolon
  • normal brackets, or parenthesis ( ): most of the time represent a function.
  • square brackets [ ]: are for arrays
  • curly braces { }: define a data structure called a dictionary
  • In some other programming languages curly braces are used to define the block or body of a structure. In python we use colon and indentation to define the body of a structure.
