Python is great for this early hacking period, where code is often disposable and any solution is good for now. Python have many important features why hackers choose Python. They are given below:
=> Python programming has many pre-built libraries that provide some powerful functionality.
=> Python programs take much less time to develop. Its programs are typically 3-5 times shorter than equivalent Java programs.
=> Python is an Object-Oriented programming. It makes easy to maintain and modify existing code as new objects are created inheriting characteristics from existing ones. This cuts down the development time considerably and makes adjusting the program much simpler.
=> When you write programs in Python, you never need to bother about the low-level details such as managing the memory used by your program, etc.
=> It supports a programming style that uses simple functions and variables without engaging in class definitions.
=> Due to its open-source nature, Python has been ported (i.e. changed to make it work on) to many platforms. You can use Python on Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, Macintosh, Solaris, and many other platforms.
=> Python is a very powerful language. Nowadays, many hacking tools, penetration testing tools, web application, standalone application are developed in Python.
=> Python is a High-Level Language with 1,000 modules and much more are available in various other repositories.
=> Python community has a large number of open source libraries, that makes programming alot easier. So hackers go for writing programs in python than c or other languages.
=> You can embed Python within your C/C++ programs to give ‘scripting’ capabilities for your program’s users.
=> It supports automatic garbage collection.
