@TimB0 The same way you would in an interactive Python shell :)

$ python3 -c 'x = 42; import code; code.interact(local=dict(globals(), **locals()))'
>>> x
42

(and when you're done, use ^D (EOF) to continue or quit() to abort the program)

    try:
        import code; 
        code.interact(local=dict(frame.f_globals, **frame.f_locals))
    finally:
        del frame
