 Can Python make a large program with lots of gigabytes?
Eve Online uses a lot of Python, though.

That is pretty cool! I didn't know it. Do you know more exactly what parts of the game use Python by chance?
I would guess it's things like running servers, handling events, data etc... and not the core game engine itself... or is it?
I'm not sure, I just remember hearing about it. According the main Python page Industrial Light and Magic uses it for batch processing millions of frames across a network of computers running different OS's

Oh yes, I heard about Python in Star Wars. What more could a Python nerd ask for =)
yes,it can,but you must check your computers specification first.(make sure it is high enough)
Big game , animation and etc company have strong cpu and render farm to speed up their compiling and interpreting process.
i wrote a little test script to use as much memory as it can.  it's taking quite a while.

#!/usr/bin/env python3
from copy import deepcopy
tree = { 'subtree':{ 1:'one', 2:'two' } }
for n in range( 0xffffffffffff ):
    print( n )
    tree['foo'] = deepcopy( tree )
    tree['bar'] = deepcopy( tree )
i guess i didn't need such a large argument for range() Shocked

it's using 95% of memory and 20% of CPU, so it must be swapping heavily.

i gave up on it.  i was running it in 3 different size cloud instances in parallel.  i terminated all 3.

you didn't think i would run it on my laptop did you?
What do you call someone who speaks three languages? Trilingual. Two languages? Bilingual. One language? American.
