Okay, file this under RTFM, but even after research, I cannot figure out the answer to this simple question.

When I do an ssh in python (version 2.7.3) to a device, I am trying to capture the output of the command.

However, all I get back is a numerical value.  I am looking to get the actual output from the "ls /var/tmp"

command below.  This is probably readily available info, but I am just not searching on the python sites correctly.


(Pdb) ssh = sshClient.pxssh()

(Pdb) ssh.login(server=ip_addr, username=user, password=pswd)


(Pdb) str = ssh.sendline('ls /var/tmp')

(Pdb) str
