call os command from python

/ Published in: Python
Save to your folder(s)

The advantage of subprocess vs system is that it is more flexible (you can get the stdout, stderr, the "real" status code, better error handling, etc...). I think os.system is deprecated, too, or will be:

For quick/dirty/one time scripts, os.system is enough, though.

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. from subprocess import call
  2. call(["ls", "-l"])
