Tools for easy invocation of system shell commands
Shell Command is a simple set of shell invocation tools intended to make it easy to build and execute shell commands from Python, automatically handling file names containing whitespace and protecting your code from inadvertent exposure to shell injection attacks.
It’s aim is to allow system administrators convenient access to the shell commands and syntax they already find familiar for individual operations, while using Python to manage their control flow and higher level data structures.
