Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to divide a certain country into grids 1,2,3,..., then, I want to know into which grid a point coordinate will fall. For example, if I have points a,b,c, I need to put these points into the grids according to their coordinates. Accuracy is not an issue. I prefer a way that does not require any paid or rate limited services if possible. My application programming languages are Python and JavaScript.

I'm totally new to GIS systems and maps. I need something to start with. Any suggestion is appreciated.

The question is not specific to OpenStreetMap, so it would be better if you asked it over at http://gis.stackexchange.com .

Quantum GIS is a free GIS solution.

To get you started: there is a "vector grid" tool in qgis.
