Python 2.6 pywin32-212

What is Python pywin32-212?

Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Python supports multiple programming paradigms, including object-oriented, imperative and functional programming styles. It features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management, similar to that of Scheme, Ruby, Perl and Tcl. Like other dynamic languages, Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used in a wide range of non-scripting contexts. Using third-party tools, Python code can be packaged into standalone executable programs.


The primary executable is named python.exe. The setup package generally installs about 6 files and is usually about 9.39 MB (9,847,327 bytes).
