How to open file with PYC extension?

PYC file description

A .PYC file is a bytecode that is created when the Python source code is compiled for the first time. The Python interpreter uses the .PYC file for interpreting the compiled code, and avoids the overhead of recompilation once the .PYC file is created for the Python module. Availability of the .PYC file enhances the execution speed of the Python module, which also occupies less storage space. The .PYC file created for the module can be stored or removed from the system based on the module’s requirement.
