Functional Programming in Python

We can write Python programs in functional style. However, since this language was not specifically tailored for functional programming, it would be needlessly complicated to program in a purely functional style.

In this article, I attempt to show how programs can be written in Python in a similar style to purely functional programming languages.

Introduction to Python for the Beginners

Python is an open source general-purpose object oriented programming language. It is a high level dynamic, interpreted language.

There are no type declarations of variables, parameters, functions, or methods in source code and thus makes the code short and flexible. It incorporates modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high level dynamic data types, and classes. It is easy to interface with various languages like C, C++, Java, etc.
