Hi. I'm trying to resolve an issue with strings.
The command(inclusive of the back-slashes)
condor_q -l -constraint "ProjectId==\"anoopr_samadams.fnal.gov_161903_30209\""
is the only way the command returns the right result.
I'm trying to run this command from inside a python program.
The way I can get it work is by:
os.system('condor_q -l -constraint "ProjectId==\\\"anoopr_samadams.fnal.gov_161903_30209\\\""')
But, I'd rather use the os.exec functions to get the output. But
doesnt work. Its definately a problem with one of the million
backslashes and quotes present, but I'm not able to figure it out.
What am I doing wrong?
