I like the idea, but that's a fairly big semantic change. What about adding an -e option that takes an expression, and prints its value? So you'd have
python -e "12 / 4.1"
(AFAICT, -e is unused at present).
For some reason I always type -e (for "eval" or "exec"?) before realizing that it should have been -c.
What do you think python -e "for i in range(5): i" should print? Note that on >>> prompt:
for i in range(5): i
... 0 1 2 3 4
I'd be happy with the same behaviour as the interactive interpreter.
