To create a Python library that allows you to create a Python virtual environment using a single command, you can use the subprocess module to execute the necessary shell commands. Here's an example of how you can implement such a library:

pythonCopy code
import subprocess
def create_virtualenv(env_name):
subprocess.run(['python', '-m', 'venv', env_name])
# Usage example
create_virtualenv('myenv')

In this example, the create_virtualenv function takes an env_name parameter, which specifies the name of the virtual environment you want to create. It uses the subprocess.run function to execute the python -m venv command, which is the standard way to create a virtual environment in Python.

To use this library, you would import it into your Python script or interactive session and call the create_virtualenv function, providing the desired name for your virtual environment.

Please note that this implementation assumes you have Python installed and accessible through the command line. Additionally, it uses the built-in venv module that comes with Python, so no additional libraries or packages are required.
