Python: Importing pyc files without py files takes more time?

+2 votes
121 views

I have an application which uses extensively python 2.7.6 (CPython).

The issue that I see is the following: "If there are only pyc files, the loading time of the application is much more than if I have pyc and py files. It is behind with 2 minutes more than if it had py files"

Do you have any idea why this is happening?

You may get some clues by starting python as

/path/to/python/python2.7 -vv

which will provide the details of attempts to import:

$ python2.7 -vv
# installing zipimport hook
import zipimport # builtin
# installed zipimport hook
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site.so
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/sitemodule.so
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site.py
# /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site.pyc matches /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site.py
import site # precompiled from /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site.pyc
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/os.so
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/osmodule.so
# trying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/os.py
# /usr/local/lib/python2.7/os.pyc matches /usr/local/lib/python2.7/os.py
import os # precompiled from /usr/local/lib/python2.7/os.pyc

Just wanted to clarify whether CPython already includes these kind of byte code optimizations? Are all the temporary variables removed when byte code is generated?

I'm running a box with Debian squeeze, and I just ran:

sudo aptitude install jython

which ended up installing Python 2.5:

[...]
Linking and byte-compiling packages for runtime python2.5...
Setting up python2.5 (2.5.5-11) ...

Does anyone know why CPython 2.5 is a dependency for Jython 2.5.1+ on Debian squeeze?

I'm currently trying to make sense of Python's Timsort function. From the wikipedia page I was told the algorithm is located somewhere here: http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/default/Objects/listobject.c

So of all the functions in there, could somebody point to me which one is timsort?

I want to install path.py in my Python 3.4 environment on a Centos 5 box. My /usr/local/bin/ contains:

easy_install-3.4 
python3.4  
etc. 

We are behind a proxy server and I tried this:

# /usr/local/bin/easy_install-3.4 path.py 

Searching for path.py 
Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/ 
Download error on https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/: hostname '172.29.68.1  
' doesn't match either of 'www.python.org', 'python.org', 'pypi.python.org',  
'docs.python.org', 'testpypi.python.org', 'bugs.python.org', 'wiki.python.org',  
'hg.python.org', 'mail.python.org', 'packaging.python.org', 'pythonhosted.org',  
'www.pythonhosted.org', 'test.pythonhosted.org', 'us.pycon.org', 'id.python.org' --  
Some packages may not be found! 

Couldn't find index page for 'path.py' (maybe misspelled?), Am I best to use pip or easy_install? also if easy_install, how can I fix the above error?
