Does python always need to compile ENTIRE program before it can start to run it???

I can achieve something similar to Python's automatic compilation
in C/C++ by making a script that compiles and runs my program like this:

make ; myprogram

I am trying to think of an advantage Python has over this hack....

Is it true that unlike C/C++ that Python programs can start executing
before compilation is COMPLETELY done???  I think so but I'm not sure.
