Are virtual environments still needed with Python REPLs?

Is it still needed or useful to create virtual environments with venv or similar tools in Python REPLs? Does a REPL already provide the features of a virtual environment?

repl.it provides all the features of venv and more so you should be all set to go :D

@Cerberus_75 thanks, I indeed wondered whether Repl.it already provides the isolation of virtual environments.

since every repl is a container (i.e. the entire os is isolated) then it kinda functions the same.

Let me know if there is anything in specific you miss about venv.

Thanks, I don't need anything specific. I was just wondering whether REPLs provide a similar kind of isolation as virtual environments in the most common cases and can ignore the latter unless something more elaborate is needed.

A point Sale machine is a hardware system having software that works in managing the payments in retail stores via cash, cards, and other mobile applications. The hardware system accepts the swipe of cards while the software manages the remaining process of payments.The POS machine not only works in making payments but also stores the customer's data including their purchase history, name, mobile number, mode of payment, etc. The pos machine is very flexible that works perfectly for business growth by making easy payments just with a swipe or entering PINs.
