Hi,

From C, we can generate a UNIX system call command like system("..."). What is
the equivalence in Python? Thanks.

I found the following way:

...
...
import os
...
...
os.system("name of Unix command")
...
...


Using this procedure I've been able to run any Unix command from
a PYTHON script.
