Python scripts can be executed by passing the script name to the python command or created as executable commands that can run stand-alone. You’ll learn how to create both in this lesson.

script.py:

print("Hello World")

When we want to run the script, we can do:

python3 script.py

We can also make the script a stand-alone executable:

#! /usr/bin/env python

print("Hello World")
chmod +x script.py
./script.py
