cpython, jython, etc.?

What does it matter that the interpreter was written in a different language? Why is it any different and why not just keep using normal python?

I don't know what it means either. I guess that the internal environment would have a different way of interacting


Dont confuse language with how its builded... Python language is a set of rules that define python (syntax, types etc) while CPython and Jython implement python language in own way... CPython is the original implementation written in C, Jython is another implementation in Java but they have other differences... At example with Jython you have easy access to Java environment... Anyway, exists other python implementations like PyPy, IronPython etc
