I would like to redirect the output from os.system to a variable, but
am having trouble. I tried using os.popen(..).read() ...but that
doesn't give me exactly what i want.
..this is windows by the way.
tmp = os.popen("hostname").read()
...works as expected.
tmp = os.popen("cmd").read()
...i would like to have access to the cmd process...i.e. enter commands
like a normal command line. os.system() allows this, but i dont want
output to the screen..i wanna store it to a variable. then send
content of variable elsewhere, receive more input and submit it.
almost emulate the windows command prompt.
