Pycharm - Interpreters


PyCharm includes interpreters to create a new project with new features as the way it is needed. You can create a virtual environment in your system as the way you need it. You can also inherit global site packages in the dialog box. Interpreters are available on Python Package Index (PyPI) and can be easily installed and accessed using pip install.

Creation of Interpreter

For creating an interpreter, it is always recommended to create a new project where desired configurations are managed. Look at the following screenshot for a better understanding −

Creation Interpreter

These parameters include −

  • Location − This describes the parameter where virtual environment is created focusing on the location on system.

  • Basic interpreter − It defines the attributes of interpreter.

The dialog box also refers to the parameter where an existing virtual interpreter will be taken as an attribute. Once the user adds a new local interpreter, PyCharm will ask the user for the binary of interpreter. In most cases, it is always considered to be a .exe file. In case of Jython, it will be always a .bat file.
