A Python source-code generator based on the ``compiler.ast`` abstract syntax tree.

Project description

This package provides a module-level source-code generator which operates on the AST from the built-in compiler.ast module.

Note that this AST is not compatible with the new ast module in Python 2.6.


The generator works on AST parse trees.

>>> from compiler import parse
>>> tree = parse("""\
...     print 'Hello, world!'
... """)

We can now generate Python-code equivalent to the original using the source-code generator.

>>> from sourcecodegen import ModuleSourceCodeGenerator
>>> generator = ModuleSourceCodeGenerator(tree)
>>> print generator.getSourceCode()
print 'Hello, world!'
