Re: import a function from bash to python? -HELP!-

Is is possible to import a function from bash to python? If so, what is the
syntax and how should I pass the input parameters?
The only possibility is to use the subprocess module
and this is a more general problem, one involving the
invocation of external processes to perform some work
for you and get the resutls.

Read: pydoc subprocess

Directly importing a bash function into python is not
possible. Write a bash script, then call it with subprocess.

Well, you could write a bash interpreter in Python...
but that's probably more work than it's worth
