Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It incorporates modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high level dynamic data types, and classes. It has interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various window systems, and is extensible in C or C++. It is also usable as an extension language for applications that need a programmable interface.

Portable Python includes Django web application framework and the Scite Editor. Note: this program is no longer under active development (thanks shnbwmn).

Including the following applications/libraries.

According to the website, Portable Python is no longer being developed. It would seem that WinPython (http://winpython.github.io/) is its successor.

@ jgermann: Scroll down to the bottom of the download page and use one of the mirror downloads (e.g. USA Rowan.edu). Klick on "HTTP".

I cannot find an .exe file to download. What I get is a .torrent file which universal extractor does not recognize.

User freakazoid posted another portable alternative, WinPython (http://winpython.sourceforge.net/; see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=65076#p65076)...

If you only want to experiment with python, and not be encumbered by a 36MB package, you can copy the python.exe and python25.dll from Portable Python into a directory, and point PSPad to that python.exe as a project compiler. This enables you to create a python script and execute it within PSPad for < 800k. Additionally, you can 7-Zip Portable Python's Lib directory, since it contains modules you can selectively extract, as needed, for inclusion in your python scripts. The Lib directory compresses to ~2.8MB.
