Shell Script: Execute a python program from within a shell script

I've tried googling the answer but with no luck.

I need to use my works supercomputer server, but for my python script to run, it must be executed via a shell script.

For example I want

job.sh
to execute
python_script.py


How can this be accomplished?

Answer

Just make sure the python executable is in your PATH environment variable then add in your script

python path/to/the/python_script.py

Details:

  • In the file job.sh, put this
#!/bin/sh
python python_script.py
  • Execute this command to make the script runnable for you : chmod u+x job.sh
  • Run it : ./job.sh
