Generally referred as Python, it is the python’s mainstream implementation written in C meeting the C89 compiler
• CPython compiles the python programs into intermediate byte-code and then translates this into the native language of your computer and then runs it.
• It is truly a cross-platform language. Programs written once can be run across a variety of platforms, on which CPython is supported, with minimum or no changes.
• All python program files have .py extension and CPython’s byte-code files have a .pyc extension
