Q: "How do I get python to run these other things, and keep the window
open so that I can see their output?"
A: Making sure to run your script with the console version of Python
(python.exe, NOT pythonw.exe):
#insert the body of your script here
raw_input("press enter to continue...");
# or even
Q: "I'm running the non-console version of Python, how do I capture the
output of my scripts so that I can do something with it afterwards?"
A: I'll answer this one tomorrow, it is getting late.
