How to Redirect Linux Echo Output to a Python Script?

Estimated read time 1 min read

You can use the subprocess module in Python to run Linux commands and redirect the output to a Python script. Here is an example:

import subprocess

# Run the "echo" command in Linux and redirect the output to a Python script
command = "echo 'Hello, world!'"
result = subprocess.run(command, shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)

# Decode the output bytes into a string
output = result.stdout.decode()

# Print the output
print(output)

In this example, the subprocess.run() method is used to run the “echo” command in Linux and redirect the output to a Python script. The shell=True parameter tells the method to execute the command in a shell environment. The stdout=subprocess.PIPE parameter tells the method to capture the standard output of the command.

The output of the command is captured in a CompletedProcess object, which is stored in the result variable. The stdout attribute of the CompletedProcess object contains the output of the command as a sequence of bytes. The decode() method is used to convert the bytes into a string.

Finally, the output is printed to the console using the print() function.
