[Tutor] script question

 Thanks for all the input!!! I really appreciate it. I need to post a
correction to my script. What I sent was an early version. I made a few
minor modifications:

import ConfigParser, string, sys, os
section = sys.argv[1]
interface = sys.argv[3]
interface_entries=[p for p in INI.options
interface_list=[INI.get(section, pw) for pw in interface_entries]
for i in interface_list:
	if i == interface:
		os.system("d:\\tnd\\bin\\cawto.exe -cat NetNet -n l17aesm1 forward
red held " +
sys.argv[1] + " " + sys.argv[2] + " " + sys.argv[3] + " " + sys.argv[4])

I've researched what you all have suggested and I may need to switch to
reading the ini file line by line or using a different file parser. The ini
file is only 100 lines long now, but will likely grow to 500 line and maybe
to 4000 lines. To give you a better background of what I'm doing with this
script, it's running on a network management system that receives traps.
After some processing of the raw trap, messages get sent to this script for
further processing. These messages are for interface down traps from routers
and switches in our network. I use this script to mitigate the number of
interface down messages on our console. I need to do this because we do not
need to know when every port has gone down (i.e. user ports). This script
searches the ini file for a device name match. Once it has found a match and
if the interface matches as well, I need to message forwarded to the console
(the Windows command). If no matching device or interface is found, then the
script can just exit. - Show quoted text -
