This book describes Python, an open-source general-purpose interpreted programming language available for a broad range of operating systems. There are currently four major implementations: the standard implementation written in C, Jython written in Java, IronPython written in C# for the .NET environment and PyPy, a JIT-compiled version written in RPython - a subset of Python. The current versions are 3.x with 2.x being deprecated and no longer maintained starting 1st January 2020. This book describes primarily version 2, but does at times reference changes in version 3.
