I read this somewhere a while ago but cant seem to find it. I am trying to find a command that will execute commands in the terminal and then output the result.
For example: the script will be:
command 'ls -l'
It will out the result of running that command in the terminal
Now we will see solution for issue: Python Script execute commands in Terminal [duplicate]
There are several ways to do this:
A simple way is using the os module:
import os os.system("ls -l")
More complex things can be achieved with the subprocess module:
import subprocess test = subprocess.Popen(["ping","-W","2","-c", "1", "192.168.1.70"], stdout=subprocess.PIPE) output = test.communicate()
