I'm really enjoying python in my Netbeans IDE. I would like to know extensive difference between these version of Python: Cpython, Jython, Iron python, pypy .....etc (You can add it). What is the main difference? Why all these versions? What are end products of all these versions? (.exe, .jar, etc). Why should I use one of them? Can I have all of them? Why?

You can add as many question as you can as well as answer as much as you can.

Which version of the Netbeans IDE did you download for Python coding?

Jython allows Python to use the Jave library and feeds into Java byte code.

Iron Python, I think, does a similar thing with C#

There is also python-like Boo that feeds into the .NET C# compiler. See:

Lython has a twist, it allows you to take common Lisp and turn it into Python byte code.

There is a ongoing project to convert Python code to C++ code, so it can be compiled. See:
