Apart from the data analysis software where I use scipy as a library, I
practically only write scripts, without interactive use.
I feel there is more control this way. I don't see much purpose in
However, you can also write procedural scripts (without classes etc.) in
Python... no need to delve into OO programming if you don't need to
(although I like OO personally).
