Python convert a string to a logic operator

For example, if I have an expression like

x=True or True

if I evaluate in the shell the result is True


So now I want to convert a string or an input to direct to that logic expression like

x=raw_input('Please give an expression:')

I know that the expression is a string so how to convert that string to a logic expression?

x="True or True"


You can use eval() function:

print eval(x)

Note that you must be cautious while using it.


As @PriyankPatel mentioned, another way would be using exec:

exec("print " + x)
