Ubuntu: What is python3mu?



Question:

I'm setting up PyDev for Eclipse, and I have to choose a version of Python for the interpretor. I want to use Python3, and I've been using python3 as my interpretor, so I thought /usr/bin/python3 would have been the obvious choice. However, another option there is python3mu. I ran this in the terminal and it seemed to function exactly like python3. My questions are: Which one is the correct one to use as the interpretor for Eclipse? and What is the difference between the two?

EDIT: Just wanted to let you guys know that my google-fu was not good enough to find out what python3mu was.


Solution:1

In python 3, some compile options (the abi flags) are reflected in the binary name and the name of cached bytecode in __pycache__ directories. mu means--with-pymalloc and --with-wide-unicode
