IronPython

Comparison of IronPython vs. C# for 'Hello World'

C#:

using System;
class Hello
{
    static void Main() 
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Hello World");
    }
}

IronPython:

print "Hello World"

IronPython is a Dynamic Language that runs on the .NET DLR (Dynamic Language Runtime) in contrast with VB.NET and C# which are static languages.

IronPython can also import DLL files compiled in other languages and use functions defined therein. For example:

import clr
clr.AddReference("System.Windows.Forms")
from System.Windows.Forms import *
