       python-coverage -a [file...]


       python-coverage  executes  a  Python  program  and  measures  which  of its statements are

       -e     Erase the .coverage file.

       -x     Execute a Python module, giving it the remaining command line arguments.

       -r     Produce a coverage report.

       -m     With -r, show the line numbers that were missed by the execution.

       -a     Annotate  source files.  For each source file foo, produce foo,cover, with executed
              lines prefixed by ">" and non-executed by "!".
