In most programming languages, whenever a new version is released, it supports the features and syntax of the existing version of the language, therefore, it is easier for the projects to switch to the newer version. However, in the case of Python, the two versions Python 2 and Python 3 are very much different from each other.
A list of differences between Python 2 and Python 3 are given below:
Python 2 uses print as a statement and used as print something to print some string on the console. On the other hand, Python 3 uses print as a function and used as print( something ) to print something on the console.
Python 2 uses the function raw input() to accept the user’s input. It returns the string representing the value, which is typed by the user. To convert it into the integer, we need to use the int() function in Python. On the other hand, Python 3 uses input() function which automatically interpreted the type of input entered by the user. However, we can cast this value to any type by using primitive functions (int(), str(), etc.).
In Python 2, the implicit string type is ASCII, whereas, in Python 3, the implicit string type is Unicode.
