Which version of python does this compiler uses


Replace this line with your code.


import sys
print sys.version

Just run this, it should give you all the details you want to know


2.7.3 (default, Dec 18 2014, 19:10:20)
[GCC 4.6.3]

what does GCC 4.6.3 mean?


GCC is the C-compiler (python is written in C), the 4.6.3 is the version


great i never knew this..
all of sudden everything is getting more interesting..!!


Yes, and the first version of C was written in B. Then they rewrote C in C, compiling itself. Don't try to understand that. Its weird.

It has been this way ever since, C is compiling itself

Someone wrote C code, which is known as python. So python gets interpetered by a C program, which gets compiled machine language

There my understanding ends
