What the execfile() function does is read a Python source file and run
it. You're getting a SyntaxError because .pyc files are not Python
source files. Python source files end in .py; when the Python
interpreter first runs a .py file, it will byte-compile the file, then
save the .pyc for later reference. That's what those .pyc files are:
byte-compiled files created with various versions of Python.
What icon do you show for those .pyc files? What happens when you
double-click on PySol_22.pyc?
