Sometimes if find it clumsy unsing the following approach building strings:
cmd = "%s -start %s -end %s -dir %s" % (executable, startTime, endTime,
Especially if you have a lot of variable input it makes it hard to match
the variables to the proper fields. From other scripting languanges I'm
used to something like:
$cmd = "$executable -start $startTime -end $endTime -dir $directory"
This makes it very easy to see how the string is actually built. You
dont't have to worry where which variables go.
Is there a similar way to do this in python?
