# general
I'd like to do a little poking around manually with contents of the application in my docker container. How could I start up an interactive python shell with the same python interpreter environment my pex app is using? I'm able to
into a bash shell of my container, but not sure how to access the pex's interpreter that has all the third party dependencies I need.
If you have just the
file, then you can invoke it with
to get the Python REPL rather than your normal entry point:
Copy code
$ PEX_INTERPRETER=1 ./cowsay.pex
Python 3.8.11 (default, Aug 28 2021, 14:08:29) 
[Clang 12.0.5 (clang-1205.0.22.11)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import cowsay

Nice! That's exactly what I wanted.
