prompt - multiline prompt
"""

# Simple embedded multiline python interpreter built around raw_input().
# Interrupts the control flow at any given location with 'exec prompt'
# and gives control to the user.
# Allways runs in the current scope and can even be started from the 
# pdb prompt in debugging mode. Tested with python, jython and stackless.
# Handy for simple debugging purposes.
