Colors of Python Interpreters
Too Long; Didn't ReadCPython is a reference implementation of the Python interpreter under the guidance of Guido van Rossum. It is best described as a mixture of interpreter and compiler, as the code you write is converted to bytecode. Other Python implementations include Jython, IronPython and PyPy. PyPy is written in Python itself and is an alternative to CPython. Stackless is a version of Python that avoids the use of the standard call stack in favor of its own stack. It adds microthreads to the standard Python standard operating system.
