I think I'm doing the right thing, but it does'nt seem to be working.
I have a command which I want to run from a Python script and I want to
capture the output. So I do,
i,o = os.popen2(cmd)
where cmd is the string that represents the command. But on printing o all
I get is an object representation like:
<open file '(fdopen)', mode 'r' at 0x810d9f8>
Not the output of the program.
Any suggestions as to whats going wrong and how to fix it?
