https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8528/sage-vs-pure-python/?answer=12996#post-id-12996Sage also has pretty robust interfaces to a wide variety of very discipline-specific outside packages, as well as uses them (to varying degrees) "natively" in its Pythonesque syntax. See [the list of standard packages](http://sagemath.org/packages/standard/). Much of this would be very difficult to use in Python otherwise.Tue, 13 Dec 2011 09:38:06 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8528/sage-vs-pure-python/?answer=12996#post-id-12996Answer by Nathann for <p>What is the difference (besides the minimal syntax diff.) between using Sage against using pure Python?

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8528/sage-vs-pure-python/?comment=20701#post-id-20701The reference is thousands of pages, thus I guess it's much more than thousands of lines ;)Fri, 16 Dec 2011 07:21:55 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/8528/sage-vs-pure-python/?comment=20701#post-id-20701
