What is the difference between immediate mode and stand alone in Python? I looked at the Clip section in the Help guide but it only shows the different codes and does not say what the difference is.

Thank you in advance!

Immediate mode means that you are running the lines of code in a python window line by line.  Like in the python window inside arcmap or ArcGIS pro.  In a script.. means that you have loaded, check and plan to run the script with the code lines.  The python window/shell need not be inside of map/pro either.  You can run code within a python IDE like Spyder or IPython etc etc… you just don't have to load a script first
