My favorite:

    def run (*args, **kw):
        import win32pipe
        command = string.join (args)
        i, o, e = win32pipe.popen3 (command)
        if kw.has_key ('send'):
            i.write (kw['send'])
        i.close ()
        out = o.read ()
        err = e.read ()
        return out    # discard stderr output

    ...

    bat_files = run ("dir /s *.bat")
