Python is a higher level language than C, which means it abstracts the details of the computer from you - memory management, pointers, etc, and allows you to write programs in a way which is closer to how humans think. It is true that C code usually runs 10 to 100 times faster than Python code if you measure only the execution time. However if you also include the development time Python often beats C.Other interpreted languages such as Java bytecode and .NET bytecode run faster than Python because the standard distributions include a JIT compiler that compiles bytecode to native code at runtime. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3033329/why-are-python-programs-often-slower-than-the-equivalent-program-written-in-c-

ChillPill I don't get it either. But I always tend to find some kind of debate/argument when I read "python", "slow" and "fast" all in same line.

Arun Jamson it's much better to directly share the external link rather than copy pasting the answer ( which is incomplete btw ) from SO and claiming them to be your own. https://stackoverflow.com/a/3033379/12030775

ChillPill his question isnt that hard to understand. English probably isnt his first language, but we can still pretty much figure out what he is trying to say. So lets not act like compilers shall we?

Martin Taylor, I think Arun Jamson meant that python is more abstract than C, most of the workload (memory management, sanity checks) are all handled internally in python which is not the case in C.

Martin Taylor sir fyi, recently python has surpassed java and c somehow, so the saying that python is older than java but didnt reach the market penetration has become outdated now.
