27. Custom Python Interpreters

The modules described in this chapter allow writing interfaces similar to Python's interactive interpreter. If you want a Python interpreter that supports some special feature in addition to the Python language, you should look at the code module. (The codeop module is lower-level, used to support compiling a possibly-incomplete chunk of Python code.)

The full list of modules described in this chapter is:

code   Base classes for interactive Python interpreters.
codeop   Compile (possibly incomplete) Python code.
