Under Windows, CPython is shipped with a very useful
There has already been a lenghty discussion in the "python-ideas" mailing list to write a Linux equivalent. I agree with what Éric Araujo wrote, that there isn't really a need for such a tool under Linux.
But I find it useful to use a
py -3.4 -m pip install $pkg or
py 27 $file shorthand, and hence I wrote a basic bash script equivalent : https://github.com/Lucas-C/linux_configuration/blob/master/bin/py
