Python vs Cpython

0 votes

What's all this fuss about Python and CPython (Jython,IronPython), I don't get it:

python.org mentions that CPython is:

The "traditional" implementation of Python (nicknamed CPython)

yet another Stack Overflow question mentions that:

CPython is the default byte-code interpreter of Python, which is written in C.

Honestly I don't get what both of those explanations practically mean but what I thought was that, if I use CPython does that mean when I run a sample python code, it compiles it to C language and then executes it as if it were C code

So what exactly is CPython and how does it differ when compared with python and should I probably use CPython over Python and if so what are its advantages?
