Ok, since my python script requires argv, I have to call it from
the shell, right ? There is not way from the python interpreter to go:
>>> set shellProgramArgs = 'test2.c'
>>> exec 'compilify'
So that Python will issue compilify test2.c to the shell right ?

After I run a script from the shell , I sometimes would like to drop
into the interpreter to see the values of some things . Is there a
Python command to do this ?
See so basically what has happened is I cant use the python shell to
test values after running a program and I also cant let a script
running frm csh call the python shell after it has finished so I can

os.popen execs its argument based on its own shell , not the one with
my PATH environmental variable . As a result , it cant find things
that are own my path that are not on the default PATH . Besides moving
the executable to the current directory or another place on the
default PATH, is there a workaround ?
Also : all of this is going into a FAQ sheet .
