compile() method takes in an input code and returns a code object that can easily be executed.
compile(*source, filename, mode, flags=0, dont_inherit=False, optimize=-1*)
source: The source can be an AST object or a normal/byte string.
filename: The file from where we read the code.
mode: There are three types of mode. For a single expression source, the mode is
eval. If the code consists of a single interactive statement, the mode is
exec mode takes a block of a code that has statements, classes, and functions.
flags (optional): The default for this is
dont_inherit (optional): The default for this is
optimize (optional): The optimization level of the compiler can be specified by this. Its default value is -1.
If the Python code you have is in the form of a string or an AST object and you need to change it to a code object, use
number = 30 x = compile('number', 'test', 'single') eval(x)
In order to execute the result returned by
compile(), there are two inbuilt functions that can be used:
