I would like to test that latex is installed on a windows, mac or linux
machine. What is the best way to do this? This should work:
if os.system('latex -v'):
print 'please install latex'
but I dont actually want the latex version information to print to screen. I
tried redirecting sys.stdout to a file, but that doesnt help. Is there a
better way to do this in a cross-platform friendly way?
