[Tutor] Equivalent to perl -e

My professor and advisor has been "inspired" by me to give Python a
try. He's an avid Perl user, and challenged me with the following:

What is the Python equivalent to perl -e '<some oneliner>'?

Embarassingly, I had no answer, but I figure, someone on the list will
know. His use of Python is at stake; he threatened that, since he's
dependant enough on using perl -e within Emacs enough, if it can't be
done in Python, he won't take the language seriously. Help me, Python
Tutor, you're his only hope!

Thanks in advance,
