Hi Raphaël,

I think you can define a function like :

import os, string
def GetStdOut(cmd):
	pipe = os.popen('{ ' + cmd + '; } 2>&1', 'r')
	return string.split(string.strip(pipe.read()),'\n')

then :
OUT=GetStdOut('ls')

Hi!

I was looking for a solution like in bash, which let you put the standard 
output of a command in a variable(in bash, you can do it like OUT=`ls` or 
OUT=$(ls) ).

If you have another way to take the standard output of a command and put it 
in a variable, it would be helpfull too.

Thanks.
