Hello all,

I am using os.popen to get a list returned of vpopmail
users, something like this

x = os.popen('/home/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n -D

x returns a list, of usernames, and I am trying to append the
usernames with the domain like so

for line in x:

print line + ‘@’ + domain

but instead of getting

us** <mailto:us**>

im getting a newline character like:




Is there some way I can get this list without the newline characters
being added. or somehow remove the newline characters. Any help would
be appreciated.

The problem has nothing to do with lists. The readlines() function
returns each line *with* its newline. To strip it off, use line.strip()

Also os.popen is deprecated. You should probably learn subprocess.
