BPYTHON(1)			    bpython			    BPYTHON(1)

NAME
       bpython - a fancy {curtsies, curses, urwid} interface to	the Python in-
       teractive interpreter

SYNOPSIS
       bpython [options] [file [args]]

       bpython-curses [options]	[file [args]]

       bpython-urwid [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  sugges-
	      tion.

       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 (bpaste.net) or
	      writes it	to a file.

       Flush curses screen to stdout.
	      Unlike other curses apps,	bpython	dumps the screen data to  std-
	      out  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.

       The following options are supported by all frontends:

       --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.

       In  addition  to	the above options, bpython also	supports the following
       options:

       -L, --log
	      Write debugging messages to the file bpython.log.	 Use  -LL  for
	      more verbose logging.

       -p file,	--paste=file
	      Paste in the contents of a file at startup.

       In addition to the common options, bpython-urwid	also supports the fol-
       lowing options if Twisted is available:

       -r _reactor_, --reactor=_reactor_
	      Use Twisted's <reactor> instead of urwid's event loop.

       --help-reactors
	      Display a	list of	available Twisted reactors.

       -p _plugin_, --plugin=_plugin_
	      Execute a	twistd plugin. Use twistd to get a list	 of  available
	      plugins. Use -- to pass options to the plugin.

       -s _port_, --server=_port_
	      Run an eval server on port <port>. This option forces the	use of
	      a	Twisted	reactor.
