Python Language Dynamic code execution with `exec` and `eval` Precompiling an expression to evaluate it multiple times

30% OFF - 9th Anniversary discount on Entity Framework Extensions until December 15 with code: ZZZANNIVERSARY9


compile built-in function can be used to precompile an expression to a code object; this code object can then be passed to eval. This will speed up the repeated executions of the evaluated code. The 3rd parameter to compile needs to be the string 'eval'.

>>> code = compile('a * b + c', '<string>', 'eval')
>>> code
<code object <module> at 0x7f0e51a58830, file "<string>", line 1>
>>> a, b, c = 1, 2, 3
>>> eval(code)
