I'm pleased to announce Blip version 0.1.0, a bytecode compiler for Python


Blip compiles Python 3 source files to bytecode. The output bytecode is
compatible with the CPython interpreter (the "standard" Python

For example, given a Python 3 source file called foo.py, the command:

   blip foo.py

produces a bytecode file called foo.pyc. The bytecode can be executed by
passing it as an argument to a CPython interpreter:

   python3 foo.pyc

This is an early development release of Blip, so it is not ready for
serious use, however it supports most of the Python 3 language already.

It has been tested on OS X 10.7.5 with GHC 7.4.2. The output has been
tested with Python 3.3.0.

Currently implemented features:
