Perhaps of any very high level language.

Guess I am feeling some frustration.  Don't see a path to getting
deeper into an understanding of Python without undertaking getting
some handle on C.  Mostly intuition at work.  

And its not that I need (or expect to be able) to follow the Python C
code.

Python has me addicted me to the interactive prompt as a learning
tool, so was lucky to comae across CH, a C intepreter.
