Python - as a high level tool for simulations

By 4:52 AM ,

Citing from their website; "Python is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs."

We mainly use python at Rotorbit as a scripting tool within our software which quickens the file movement, compilation (e.g. Make, CMake), output etc.. stages. Below is a part of our main python script we have implemented in our solver. It is a high level language. It has been voted to be even taught to elementary level students to help them become familiar with programming from the early stages of their life since programming knowledge is becoming widely required. For further tutorials and documentation refer to python website.

To give a short example, we use python script "" for our GAUSS software to manage compilation, running, output generation. We invoke the command;

$ python -m

to compile the software, and below you can see a small portion of the part corresponding to the "-m" argument.
