bpython and multiple python versions

To use bpython with multiple version items this trick has been relayed to us by Simon Liedtke.

Do a source checkout of bpython and add the following to your .profile equivalent file.

alias bpython3.5='PYTHONPATH=~/python/bpython python3.5 -m bpython.cli'

Where the ~/python/bpython-path is the path to where your bpython source code resides.

You can of course add multiple aliases, so you can run bpython with 2.6, 2.7 and the 3 series.

Note

Make sure you have the dependencies installed on all Python versions.
