Python is a reasonable choice for an interpreted language with a form of bytecode. It is, however, horribly picky on syntax compared to other scripting languages (rexx, clist, perl, php). But, that may be a advantage. It doesn't have a switch/case construct by default (and if ... elif ... else can get very much out of control) which was a surprise. [Although I found a code sample to add switch/case.]
I'm yet to be convinced that python should be the language of choice.
For speed I'd probably resort to C.
Some day I'll read the ARM1176JZF-S Technical Reference and teach myself ARM assembler.
