I think, Python is mainly an interpreted programming language, although
Python can also compile and execute some kind of bytecode. I sometimes
write small programs in Python but I don't really care if Python just
interprets my source or if the bytecode is compiled and executed.
Usually my Python programs run fast enough even if there interpreted.
