Do i Build Blender for every change I make in the code?

I want to see how the BVH import script in blender works.

I was thinking if I could print the values of the variables at different points in the code to the console then it would help me a lot.(just like the logs printed in Report Console in Blender)

Will I have to build Blender every time I make a change in the code?

And what does build exactly mean? (if it is not something similar to what the commands “gcc -o testOut test.c” does to a C file)

Any References, Documents, Links would help.

Thanks.

i think you must recompile blender to see your code change result.

this is a good point to start develop or make changes in blender
