The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

A Python question

I have read today that emerge is written in Python and want to ask is it possible in someway to produce executables for linux written in Python ? Because I think Python is an interpreted language.

Thanks in advance

Yeah, you make it executable by doing chmod +x Make sure you include the shabang (#! /usr/bin/env python) on the first line of the file.

Now, if you're looking to do "binaries" you can use py2exe for windows apps but there's really no need to this for Linux. Also, keep in mind when you create a binaries package you automatically make it altogether 2.5mb even for a "Hello World" program.

You might find some information here:

It's something like a JIT compiler for Python.
