This question might better suit comp.lang.python, but nevertheless:
The opcodes are quite well documented, in the documentation of the
"dis" module. Many of them serve a specific purpose (like implementing
`x[y]` or `raise x`) and should therefore be easy to test. For the
others, like ROT_TWO, you'll need to look into Python/compile.c to
find out in which cases they are generated.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
