Python 2.2 (#36, Jan 30 2002, 17:50:25)
[GCC 2.95.2 19991024 (release)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> print execfile.__doc__
execfile(filename[, globals[, locals]])

Read and execute a Python script from a file.
The globals and locals are dictionaries, defaulting to the current
globals and locals.  If only globals is given, locals defaults to it.

>>> execfile( 'executable.py' )
it's me
init
>>> dir()
['C', '__builtins__', '__doc__', '__name__', 'c']
>>> del c
deleted
>>>
