My first contacts with Python were with JPython. I got interested for it's
use in unit-testing Java-classes. Now I am building prototypes with C-Python
and I love it.
Both the C and Java versions allow me to harden the code and transform the
Proto to
production code, if speed is necessary
To build larger systems you need classes and modules for abstraction and
reuse.
To build proto's you need interactive programming and short code-debug
cycles.
Need GUI's? MFC or tcl/tk?
Networking, Parsers, XML, HTML, regex?
ehh, Python?

The online-documentation and examples were sufficient for me, but I love
paper refs and
everbody should have Programming Python
