[ open on suburban kitchen, Wife and Husband arguing ]

Wife: New Shimmer is a floor wax!

Husband: No, new Shimmer is a dessert topping!

Wife: It's a floor wax!

Husband: It's a dessert topping!

Wife: It's a floor wax, I'm telling you!

Husband: It's a dessert topping, you cow!

Spokesman: [ enters quickly ] Hey, hey, hey, calm down, you two. New
Shimmer is both a floor wax and a dessert topping! Here, I'll spray
some on your mop.. [ sprays Shimmer onto mop ] ..and some on your
butterscotch pudding. [ sprays Shimmer onto pudding ]

[ Husband eats while Wife mops ]

Husband: Mmmmm, tastes terrific!

Wife: And just look at that shine! But will it last?

Spokesman: Hey, outlasts every other leading floor wax, 2 to 1. It's
durable, and it's scuff-resistant.

Husband: And it's delicious!

Spokesman: Sure is! Perks up anything from an ice cream sundae to a
pumpkin pie!

Wife: Made from an exclusive non-yellowing formula.

Husband: I haven't even touched my pudding and I'm ready for more!

Wife: But what about black heel marks?

Spokesman: Dirt, grime, even black heel marks, wipe clean with a damp
mop.

[ Husband accidentally sprays Shimmer onto the floor ]

Husband: Oh, sorry, honey, I'll clean that up!

Wife: Oh, no problem, sweetheart, not with new Shimmer!

[ Spokesman laughs continuously as he approaches the camera ]

Spokesman: New Shimmer, for the greatest shine you ever tasted!

Ducking,
Michael

Not the most to-the-point reply, but a very amusing one :).

Python is an algorithm programming language.

The CPython implementation of the langauge compiles Python to proprietary
byte code
Hahem... "proprietar y" is certainly not the right term here.
and then interprets the byte code.

Somewhere between Perl and Java.
And Is it a interpreted language or a programming language
??? It's obviously a programming language, but this has nothing to do
with interpreted vs compiled - which FWIW is a property of an
implementation, not of a language.

Actually, most Python implementations are compiled to byte-code
(specific one for CPython, JVM byte-code for Jython, CLR byte-code for
Iron-Python).

a. you are being nitpicky, overly in my opinion
b. you failed to suggest a better term, hence cannot expect the same of me

In any case, CPython is owned by PSF (which gives it away). Its bytecode
is an private implementation detail subject to change in any .x version as
the developers see fit.

Yes, but it's not like the PSF are going to initiate legal action
against anyone who implements an interpreter for similar bytecode,
which is what has happened for things like CPU instruction sets in the
past. CPython bytecode is best described as "implementa tion-specific",
thus avoiding any words with exclusive ownership connotations.
