NAME

       bpython - a fancy curses interface to the Python interactive interpreter

SYNOPSIS

       bpython [options] [file [args]]

DESCRIPTION

       The  idea is to provide the user with all the features in-line, much like modern IDEs, but
       in a simple, lightweight package that can be run in a terminal window.

       * In-line syntax highlighting.
              Hilights commands as you type!
       * Readline-like autocomplete with suggestions displayed as you type.
              Press tab to complete expressions when there's only one suggestion.
       * Expected parameter list.
              This displays a list of parameters for any function you call. It uses  the  inspect
              module, then tries pydoc.
       * Rewind.
              This is a bit misleading, but it code that has been entered is remembered, and when
              you Rewind, it pops the last  line  and  re-evaluates  the  entire  code.  This  is
              error-prone, and mostly useful for defining classes and functions.
       * Pastebin code/write to file.
              This  posts  the  current  buffer to a pastebin (paste.pocoo.org) or writes it to a
              file.
       * Flush curses screen to stdout.
              Unlike other curses apps, bpython dumps the screen data to stdout when you quit, so
              you see what you've done in the buffer of your terminal.

OPTIONS

       The  long  and  short  forms  of  options,  shown here as alternatives, are equivalent. If
       bpython sees an argument it does not know, execution falls  back  to  the  regular  Python
       interpreter.

       --config=config
           Use config instead of default config file.

       -h
       --help
           Show the help message and exit.

       -i
       --interactive
           Drop  to  bpython shell after running file instead of exiting.  The PYTHONSTARTUP file
           is not read.

       -q
       --quiet
           Do not flush the output to stdout.

       -V
       --version
           Print bpython's version and exit.

KEYS

       bpython's     keys     are     fully      configurable.      See      http://docs.bpython-
       interpreter.org/configuration.html#keyboard

FILES

       ~/.bpython/config
              Your  bpython  config.  See  sample-config  (in  /usr/share/doc/bpython/examples on
