I have recently started working on Python. I found that some python script begins with #!/usr/bin/env python instead of #!/usr/bin python.
Can anyone tell me Is there are same or different?

If in case you have installed several versions of python, the #!/usr/bin/env ensures that the interpreter will use the first installed or default version of python on your system. The other one would be to hardcode #!/usr/bin python but less flexible.
We use #!/usr/bin/env python instead of #!/usr/bin python because it is required to specify an absolute path to the program, and #!/usr/bin/env python that helps the user’s path to run an application and thus, it is more portable.
