I want to get the
result = os.system(batcmd)
If all you need is the
stdout output, then take a look at
subprocess.check_output() (added in Python 2.7):
import subprocess batcmd="dir" result = subprocess.check_output(batcmd, shell=True)
Because you were using
os.system(), you'd have to set
shell=True to get the same behaviour. You do want to heed the big red warning message about passing untrusted arguments to your shell.
If you need to capture
stderr as well, simply add
stderr=subprocess.STDOUT to the call:
result = subprocess.check_output([batcmd], stderr=subprocess.STDOUT)
to redirect the error output to the default output stream.
