Compiler tools with improved interactive support.
Provides compilation machinery similar to codeop, but with caching support so we can provide interactive tracebacks.
A compiler that caches code compiled from interactive statements.
ast_parse(source, filename='<unknown>', symbol='exec')¶
Parse code to an AST with the current compiler flags active.
Arguments are exactly the same as ast.parse (in the standard library), and are passed to the built-in compile function.
Make a name for a block of code, and cache the code.
code : str
The Python source code to cache.
number : int
A number which forms part of the code’s name. Used for the execution counter.
The name of the cached code (as a string). Pass this as the filename
argument to compilation, so that tracebacks are correctly hooked up.
Flags currently active in the compilation process.
Reset compiler flags to default state.
