8.3 Interactive input

Input in interactive mode is parsed using the following grammar:

interactive_input [stmt_list] NEWLINE
| compound_stmt NEWLINE

Note that a (top-level) compound statement must be followed by a blank line in interactive mode; this is needed to help the parser detect the end of the input.
