Thanks Mat .. that was the key .. 
'len' I'll remember that one , I just wasn't even thinking about that.  
I was so ingrained on using 'cmd' .. *sigh

len(mlist.members) should work.

Hi folks,

I've written a little script to give me output of the following from any or all listservs we manage.  Listname, Last Activity, List Creation Date, Anonymous List, Admins
I'd like to add a count of users into the mix, but just cannot seem to get my head around it.

Here is my script :
"""Display the last post time for a list or all lists.

Save as bin/FSU_listCheck.py

Run via

    bin/withlist -r FSU_listCheck listname


    bin/withlist -a -r FSU_listCheck

to do all lists.

import time

def FSU_listCheck(mlist):
    #This process outputs the following : listname, Last Activity, List Creation Date, Anonymous List, Admins
    print '%s; %s; %s; %s; %s' % (
       time.strftime('%Y/%m/%d %I:%M %p',time.localtime(mlist.last_post_time)),
        time.strftime('%Y/%m/%d %I:%M %p',time.localtime(mlist.created_at)),

I am sure it's some sort of mlist.usernames and then maybe using a cmd= 'wc -l' , but I cannot get it to jibe..  any help?
