General Development IronPython is a new implementation of the Python language targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). It compiles python programs into bytecode (IL) that will run on either Microsoft's .NET or the Open Source Mono platform. Elsewhere, "A Byte of Python" is a free book (or free tutorial) on Python. It is meant to be a guide to anyone learning Python.

I thought the future of Python was to compile down to Parrot bytecode. What gives?

Also, wasn't Iron Python one of those cool Kung-Fu dudes in those Saturday-morning movies? Didn't he fight the drunken master? ;)
