Is it possible to execute python commands passed as strings using python -c? can someone give an example.
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 2.7.3 (default, Apr 13 2012, 20:16:59) [GCC 4.6.3 20120306 (Red Hat 4.6.3-2)]
