To rerun a Python file after making changes, you can follow these steps:
- Save your changes: Make sure you save the modifications you made to the Python file by pressing
Ctrl + S(or
Cmd + Son macOS) or using the corresponding save option in your text editor or IDE.
- Terminate the previous execution: If the Python file is currently running, terminate the execution by pressing
Ctrl + Cin the terminal or stopping the execution in your IDE.
- Run the Python file again: Depending on your setup, you can run the Python file in different ways:
- Terminal: Open a terminal, navigate to the directory where the Python file is located, and run the file using the Python interpreter. For example:
- Integrated Development Environment (IDE): In an IDE, you can usually run the Python file directly from the editor or use the provided run/debug buttons.
- Command-line tools: If you’re using command-line tools like Jupyter Notebook or IPython, you can rerun the Python file by re-executing the cell or reloading the module if necessary.
After rerunning the Python file, the changes you made will be reflected in the execution, and the updated behavior or output will be displayed.
Keep in mind that if your code relies on any external dependencies or modules, ensure that they are installed and up-to-date to avoid potential errors.
