Python Question

Execute python commands passed as strings in command line using python -c

Is it possible to execute python commands passed as strings using python -c? can someone give an example.

Answer

For a single string you can use python -c. But for strings as the question asks, you must pass them to stdin:

$ python << EOF
> import sys
> print sys.version
> EOF
