I have a batch file that runs a python script. I am running Python 3.2. I want to send a variable like an integer or string from the python script back to the batch file, is this possible?
I know I can accept command line arguments in the Python script with
sys.argv. Was hoping there was some feature that allows me to do the reverse.
You can't "send" a string. You can print it out and have the calling process capture it, but you can only directly return numbers from 0 through 255.
In your Python script, just write to standard out:
I'm not sure what scripting language you are using, maybe you could elaborate on that, for now I'll assume you are using bash (unix shell). So, In your batch script you can have the output of the python script into a variable like this:
#run the script and store the output into $val val = `python your_python_script.py` #print $val echo $val
EDIT it turns out, it is Windows batch
python your_python_script.py > tmpFile set /p myvar= < tmpFile del tmpFile echo %myvar%
