Hi all,

Searching through the group emails, I've found out how to redirect
output from python functions. Now I would like to redirect the output
from a os.system() process to a Text widget. How can I do it?

Python Reference Library  says the following on stdout, stdin of sys
module:

"(Changing these objects doesn't affect the standard I/O streams of
processes executed by os.popen(), os.system() or the exec*() family of
functions in the
os module.)"  

So, what should be done??

Thanks, 
Era
