stackless python?

Recommended Posts

Stackless is different from CPython in its internal implementation, which gives you the ability to use microthreads. The name comes from the fact that CPython (essentially) creates C stack frames for Python function calls, while Stackless doesn't. Microthreads aside, the two are identical from the Python programmer's point of view.

Since you're just starting Python, I wouldn't worry about Stackless. Its microthreads are potentially very attractive for game programming, but you've got enough on your plate already for now.
