Logging output from python

Hi, guys

Basiclly, it is automated testing system. There is a main python script
that handles the testing campagin. This main script will call another
script that will in turn runs a few hundered individual python scripts.
Here is my problem. I want to log everything displayed in the screen
after I start the main python script. Things include unhandled
exceptions , message from print statement and other sources.
Basically, if it is displayed on the screen, I want to log it..
It might not be a pythons specific problem. Does anyone know a small
tool does that job?
Thanks.

If it's on linux you can just redirect the screen output to a file:

python initialfile.py 1>stdout.txt 2>stderr.txt

or if you want standard out and standard error to go to the same file:

python initialfile.py 1>output.txt 2>output.txt

or if you don't want to see anything on standard error:

python initialfile.py 1>output.txt 2>/dev/null
As for windows, I'll test it now...

It turns out you can at least redirect the output to a file, I'm not
sure what it does with standard error or even if it exists or not.

python initialfile.py output.txt

should work.
Hope it helps,

Cameron.

It's the same syntax as noted for linux above. 1is the same as alone.

If ALL the testing is done on a single program (that is, no os.system
or spawn or subprocess...) then you could just replace sys.stdout and
sys.stderr with another open file (or file-like) object.

Redirection in Windows is explained here:

>type output.py
import sys

print 'This is print.'
sys.stdout.write('This is stdout.write()\n')
sys.stderr.write('This is stderr.write()\n')
>python output.py 1>stdout.txt 2>stderr.txt
>type stdout.txt
This is print.
This is stdout.write()
>type stderr.txt
This is stderr.write()

Seems on XP it works too.
