# Python

Various utility scripts for pre- and post-processing of Open Knee(s) will be developed using Python. Python is a general purpose and high level programming language, distributed under a free and open source licensing scheme. Many finite element analysis software has adopted Python as a scripting language. Python was also used in Open Knee - Generation 1.
