Manage Unix-like systems.
This module aims to manage Unix-likes operating systems. It manage both local or remote host in the same way. Commands can be executed interactively or not, and the result is a list of three elements:
- the status of the command (boolean based on return code)
- the standard output (stdout)
- the error output (stderr)
For executed commands on localhost, the module used is subprocess and for remotes hosts, the module used is paramiko.
Code is available on Github (http://github.com/fmenabe/python-unix)
