Normally one does that using a call to things like os.popen, or using
the new subprocess module.
If that's not suitable (if for some bizarre reason you really do want to
pick up the output of "dir" after someone has run it manually in the
console, and I can't imagine why you would want that), then search in
the list archives for a recent thread that did investigate just that
issue: how to capture text from a console window in Win32. I don't
recall the answer but I'm sure you can find it.
