I was a little confused about how find Python shell executing in 32bit or 64bit. After taking a walk by the Buskwick Inlet Park in NYC I decided to look into this.

I found a simple and quick way to find if my Python shell is executing in 32bit or 64bit. I’m using a macOS in this case, but this should work on any Linux distro.

These are the simple steps I took:

1. Started the Python interpreter
2. Ran the following:
   import platform
   platform.architecture()[0]

The above should display the following output:

'64bit' or '32bit'
Python shell executing in 32bit or 64bit
Python shell interpreter
