Re: python custom command interpreter?

In the end I'd like to be able to run a custom interpreter and just feed it
one command and a directory. The end result in the kickstart something like
this:

%post --interpreter #!/usr/bin/myinterpreter
DROP /tmp/directory
DROP /tmp/directory2
What is the problem you are trying to solve? Are you asking how to
write a shell in Python?

<pet peeve>
How would I setup the interpreter to take the DROP command?
You wouldn't... "setup" is a noun. You might "set up" an interpreter
though.

I've been reading and searching all day but I haven't found anything
close to what I'm doing. I realize that using custom commands in
this case is overkill but in the end is used to make the users life
easier.
How so? What could be easier than "rm -rf directory"?
If anyone can point me to some documentation I would be more than
grateful.
I'd be happy to, but I can't imagine what sort of documentation would
help you. It sounds like what you want to do, basically, is write a
program to read commands from stdin, parse them to make sure the
syntax is right, and then execute the equivalent code in Python.

C:\>rm -rf directory
Illegal command: rm.

Hm. ;-)

Yeah, except the application specified by the OP is to remove
directories during a kickstart install of Linux... so your comment is
worthless.
