Bug #122625, was updated on 2000-Nov-16 13:29
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.
Bug Group: Platform-specific
Summary: Using os.system() does not execute some programs
Details: I do not think I can fully explain what is happening. Here is my attempt.
I use Python as a scripting to run large programs. Sometimes the code I expect python to run in os.system(command) does not run. I cannot figure out why it does not run.
My guess is that os.system() cannot execute large programs (sometimes?). Becuase when I run
command = "XYZ" # whatever long program
it sometimes works. I have not just piped it to tcsh as
command = "XYZ"
Take the above program | tcsh
This works all the time.
