The compileall module

This module contains functions to compile all Python scripts in a given directory (or along the Python path) to bytecode. It can also be used as a script (on Unix platforms, it’s automatically run when Python is installed).

Example: Using the compileall module to compile all modules in a directory
# File: compileall-example-1.py

import compileall

print "This may take a while!"

compileall.compile_dir(".", force=1)

This may take a while!
