The py_compile Module

The py_compile module, shown in Example 13-10, allows you to explicitly compile Python modules to bytecode. It behaves like Pythons import statement, but takes a filename, not a module name.

Example 13-10. Using the py_compile Module

import py_compile

# explicitly compile this module

The compileall module can be used to compile all Python files in an entire directory tree.
