"In this article we'll show you how you can use the Gnome-Python module for creating GNOME applications with Python. Can Python, the interpreted, object oriented (OO), high-level programming language that has become so widely popular among programmers, really be used for creating GUIs? Of course it can! In fact, you can create whole GNOME applications with it. Using this Python module, creating GNOME applications will be easier and faster. To fully understand the discussions in this article, you need some basic knowledge about GNOME and Python programming."

"So, the Gnome-Python module is obviously a powerful tool that you can use for creating GNOME applications. But really, what does that mean? Essentially that means Gnome-Python is a Python wrapper around the GNOME C-functions. When you create a GNOME application in Python, Gnome-Python will make sure that the correct C-functions are called. You never have to bother about the C-functions; Gnome-Python will take care of that. Instead, you can stay lost in the land of Python all day long, without giving a thought to memory leaks, core dumps and type casting!"
