[BangPypers] Redirection of standard output to a variable

A typical scp transaction would result in an output as below:
temp.conf                                                         100%   23     0.0KB/s   00:00
I am interested in capturing the above output in a string.

what do u mean by scp output ?

commands.getstatusoutput will give you output status  and message if any

if 0 means the command is executed sucessfully.
else it failed and reason why it failed will be returned.

please remember that we cannot see you monitor ;-)
