The system command, executes a command in a subshell under Unix or Windows.

USAGE

# execute 'command'
system command

PYMOL API

cmd.system(string command,int async=0)

NOTES

async can only be specified from the Python level (not the command language)

  • if async is 0 (default), then the result code from "system" is returned in r
  • if async is 1, then the command is run in a separate thread whose object is returned

SEE ALSO

ls, cd, pwd
