Python: Check if a given value is compiled code, module

Python module: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to check if a given value is compiled code or not. Also check if a given value is a module or not. Use types.CodeType, types.ModuleType()

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import types
print("Check if a given value is compiled code:")
code = compile("print('Hello')", "sample", "exec")
print(isinstance(code, types.CodeType))
print(isinstance("print(abs(-111))", types.CodeType))
print("\nCheck if a given value is a module:")
print(isinstance(types, types.ModuleType))

Sample Output:

Check if a given value is compiled code:
True
False

Check if a given value is a module:
True

Flowchart:

Python: Tips of the Day

For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:

# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and 
# then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised.

for i in mylist:
    if i == theflag:
        break
    process(i)
else:
    raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
