I'm seeking an in-depth explanation of the
print() function's operation at the hardware level, specifically within the context of Python. When executing a simple Python command like
print("Hello, World!"), what are the underlying processes that lead to the text being displayed on the screen?
I've conducted some research, but I found information only about the
printf() function in C, or explanations focusing on internal function mechanics rather than actual text output. What are some insights into the step-by-step hardware interaction during the
print() function execution?
The Python interpreter, which is written in C, is the layer responsible for handling this. You should look at how streams as implemented in C to know how it is handled in the hardware level.
