The proposed PR adds a simple command-line interface to the ast module, similar to CLI of the tokenize and dis modules. It reads the content of a specified file (or stdin), parses it with ast.parse() and outputs the tree with ast.dump().

It can be used for learning internals of the Python compiler, in addition to tokenize and dis.
