[IronPython] Platform comparison

However, regardless of whether similar languages are implemented on those frameworks, you can still make comparisons between the DLR and Parrot as dynamic language compiler tools.
At a very high level, Parrot provides tools for the whole language development process, from a grammar engine, compiler tools, and a VM to run the generated code on. The DLR provides a way to get from a syntax tree to CLI code; it does not provide (or lock you into using) a specific parser to map your language to DLR syntax trees, and it uses any CLI-compatible VM to run on (CLR or Mono). The DLR also provides mechanisms to cache dynamic method calls, and make your language interoperate with existing CLI code.

To my knowledge there is not a working python implementation under parrot nor is there an IronPerl implementation for the DLR. The comparison you ask for is not even apples and oranges, More like mushrooms and turnips :)

Is there any comparison between DLR and ParrotVM somewhere on the interwebs?
