[Tutor] wrapping a command line tool

I am using a command line tool that allows me to specify a serial  
port and either read from or write data to it. I would like to create  
a python module that wraps that functionality and allows me to  
manipulate the incoming data to present it in a table for instance  
(like top works) or maybe store it in a dictionary and drop it into a  
database at timed intervals.

I am Python newbie so pointers to capture command line output and how  
to format it as a table for instance would be greatly appreciated.
