PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language
(2.7). It has several advantages and distinct features:
* Speed: thanks to its Just-in-Time compiler (on x86), Python programs often
run faster on PyPy.
* Memory usage: large, memory-hungry Python programs might end up taking less
space than they do in CPython.
* Compatibility: PyPy is highly compatible with existing Python code.
It supports ctypes and can run popular Python libraries like twisted and
* Stackless: PyPy supports stackless mode on most platforms, providing
micro-threads for massive concurrency.
This package contains the PyPy interpreter.
