[Tutor] using python to execute from Dir A in Dir B

lets say I am in Dir A (out of my control because I have submitted a
job to a queuing system)
and I have a python script which is running in this directory - the
one I submitted to the queue
what I need to do is have my python script run another executable,
but it must do it from a directory different from the one I am in, it
needs to run in the /scratch/ directory (again not my choice)
Is this possible, and is it easy?
the way I have been using python to run other executables is
but this dumps the output in the directory I am currently in, and not
the directory the my.executable lives in - I am hoping there is a
simple way to tell python to run the executable in its directory, and
have its output live there as well.
If I were using CSH, I could do all this very simply by having these
lines in my script
### .csh file
I am hoping this idea makes sense and is simple with python...
