How does "import __hello__" work?


Recently I’ve come across this “Hello world” Python program:

>>> import __hello__
Hello world!

I wonder how it works and how to view the source code of the __hello__ module.

__hello__ is a frozen module intended as a test case for frozen module support. Its source code is automatically generated by the Python freeze utility.
