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).
That would be great. I did worry that changing the output would be backwards incompatible with code that shells out to Python using "-c", so a different command line option would be great. So long as it works with multiple statements (semi-colon separated) like the current "-c" behaviour.
Hey, what about this little module:
import sys for x in sys.argv[1:]: exec compile(x, '<cmdline>', 'single')
$ python -me '1+1; 2+2' 2 4
So now you can
pip install e and then
