Problem with subprocess.Pope n()

Hi all,

I'm trying to run a windows batch file from a python script using
subprocess.pope n().

The issue that I'm facing is that, if i give the batch file as
parameter to the popen function, the script runs, but if i provide a
parameter, it is not working.

Can someone help me with the command.

The actual windows command to be executed is:

test.bat -t ABC_DE_FG_HI_00 1 "C:\ABCDEFGHIJK LMNOP.TXT"

What is the actual parameter required for subprocess.Pope n(parameter
chain) in this case??

Kindly help me out...

Regards and Thanks in advance...
Ashwin Murali.

do something like:
subprocess.Pope n(r'test.bat -t ABC_DE_FG_HI_00 1
"C:\ABCDEFGHIJK LMNOP.TXT",shel l=True)

This is same as doing os.system()

If even this results in any error (post back the error message) and try
setting the executable argument explicit.

subprocess.Pope n(r'test.bat -t ABC_DE_001
"C:\ABCD.TXT",e xecutable="test .bat",shell=Tru e)

this has me puzzled; I've created a small test app to show the problem I'm having. I want to use subprocess to execute system commands from inside a Tkinter app running under Cygwin. When I open a python interpreter and run my subprocess command, all is well. But when I run the same command from inside a Tkinter app, I'm getting errors.

I have a Tkinter app running on cygwin.

After I close the Toplevel widget, all of the menus in my app behave as though they...

Hi, I've used subprocess with 2.4 several times to execute a process, wait for it to finish, and then look at its output.

This seems straightforward, but it...

Hi. I wondered if anyone knew the rationale behind the naming of the Popen class in the subprocess module. Popen sounds like the a suitable name for a function that created a subprocess, but the object itself is a subprocess, not a "popen". It seems that it would be more accurate to just name the class Subprocess, can anyone explain why this...
