pythonpy

'python -c', with tab completion and shorthand

NAME

pythonpy - ’python -c’, with tab completion and shorthand

SYNOPSIS

py [-x] [-l] [-c PRE_CMD] [-C POST_CMD] [-V] [-h] [expression]

DESCRIPTION

pythonpy will evaluate any Python expression from the command line.
This will be done by the same Python interpreter that runs it. As this version uses Python 3, it is compatible with Python 3 syntax only.

OPTIONS

-x Treat each row of stdin as x
-l Treat list of stdin as l
-c PRE_CMD Run code before expression
-C POST_CMD Run code after expression
-V, --version Version info
-h, --help Show help message and exit

EXAMPLES

Float arithmetic:
    $ py ’3 * 1.5’

Import any module automatically:
    $ py ’math.exp(1)’

Multiply each line of input by 7:
    $ py ’range(3)’ | py -x ’int(x)*7’

Remove every file returned by the find command:
    $ find . -type f | py -x ’"rm %s" % x’ | sh
