This mailing list is for beginners learning Python the language. While 
we're happy to help, chances are that most people here won't be able to 
answer your question. You may have better luck with the main Python 
mailing list, python-list at python.org, also available as a news group, 

But having said that, my guess would be to look at the subprocess module 
and see if that will do what you are hoping for.
