> Hi,
> The meta description on the home page reads as follows:
> Home page for Python, an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, extensible
> programming language. It provides an extraordinary combination of clarity and
> versatility, and is free and comprehensively ported.
> I think the word interpreted should perhaps be removed. How a Python
> implementation executes code is really not a function of the language
> itself, and as far as I know none of the implementations (including
> CPython) are not strictly interpreted anyway - most use some sort of
> bytecode and a VM.
