How can I check the syntax of Python script without executing it?
How do I compile a Python script without running it? I just want to check the script for syntax errors. I was hoping for a simple command line switch, but I didn’t see anything in
python --help. I’d like an answer for both Python 2 and Python 3.
Now we will see solution for issue: Compile (but do not run) a Python script [duplicate]
import py_compile py_compile.compile('my_script.py')
