PyPy is an alternate implementation of the Python 2.7.2 interpreter. PyPy's benefits are in the area of speed, memory usage, sandboxing and stacklessness. It is compatible with Cpython with some exceptions.

Installation

pacman -S pypy

EasyInstall

Python libraries and programs can be installed in PyPy through EasyInstall. PyPy libraries are stored in a different folder then Cpython libraries.
