Need to Know :
Python3 was designed to rectify some fundamental design flaws in the language emphasizing on removing duplicate features and modules. These design changes broke the full backwards compatibility with the 2.x series and much of Python2 code does not run on Python3 without required modifications.
Some of the major changes included for Python3 were:
• Strings are handled as Bytes in Python2 whereas in Python3 its Unicode.
• Print in Python3 used as a built-in function rather than as a statement in Python2
• Exception handling.
