Of course you may.  It is part of a program I'm working on
that reports different information about the Linux system it
is running on.  A program similar to inxi.  And I am trying
to write it without using external programs, where possible.

I am a hobby programmer and I've been trying to learn python
for a few months now.  The program is 'worthlessware' but it
is a 'learning experience' for me.  A friend wrote a similar
program in Bash script and I have been working on translating
it to Python.
