Python for the CLR

IronPython is an implementation of Python for the CLR with some intriguing initial perf numbers. [via Jeremy Hylton’s Weblog ]

Shame I don’t have a Windows box where I could play with this… I got Virtual PC last week, but it’s too painfully slow to be usable.

If it’s for the CLR, try Ximian’s go-mono project. If you’ve got the app in bytecode-ready format (ie dll or exe), if there’s enough .NET classes supported, it should run on your platform.

If it’s in C#, rather than self-hosted, you can probably compile it, too.
