Installing Python 3 on a Mac

Python is a very popular interpretive language for computers. Interpreted means that programs written in Python are generally not compiled, but rather are converted to machine language a line at a time on the fly, each time they are run. This has the advantage of avoiding the sometimes long and confusing process of compiling an executable file, but may be slower in execution of computationally-intensive programs. For people learning programming and for program development work, the speed of interpretation over compilation is a big win.
