Good support for this task is needed, because:
Inappropriate functions for starting processes could mean a
security risk: If the program is started through the shell, and
the arguments contain shell meta characters, the result can be
It makes Python an even better replacement language for
over-complicated shell scripts.
Currently, Python has a large number of different functions for
process creation. This makes it hard for developers to choose.

A 5-minute introduction to the enhanced interactive shell 'IPython'.

A Demonstration of ReStructuredText
A quick look at a style of marking up plaintext called "reStructuredText"

...Python was a faster way to code (and
re-code) the programs that controlled the production pipeline.
Python Streamlines Production
But Python was not designed just as a replacement for shell scripting and, as
it turns out, Python enabled much more for ILM than just process control.
Unlike Unix shell scripting, Python can be embedded whole as a scripting
language within a larger software system. In this case, Python code can
invoke specific functions of that system, even if those functions are w...
Title:Future statements in simulated shells
Author:Michael Hudson <mwh at python.net>
As noted in PEP 236, there is no clear way for "simulated
interactive shells" to simulate the behaviour of __future__
There are two ways to get an interactive shell:
By invoking Python from a command line without a script argument.
By invoking Python from a command line with the -i switch and with a
An interactive shell can be seen as an extreme case of runtime compilation
(see above): in effect, each statement typed at an interactive shell prompt
runs a new instance of exec, compile() or execfile(). A
future_statement typed at an interactive shell applies to the rest of the

Our customer offers a privacy-safe consumer search marketplace, and requires the support of well proven Data engineers who can innovate …
The language I chose for the code generators was, of course, Python. Its
simplicity and power are perfect for the job of reading data files and
producing code. To simplify the integration with the C++ code, the Python
generators are inserted directly into the C++ file as comments.
Cog reads a text file (C++ in our case), looking for specially-marked
sections of text, that it will use as generators. It executes those sections
as Python code, capturing the output. The output is then splice...

Web and Internet Development
Python offers many choices for web development:
Frameworks such as Django and Pyramid.
Micro-frameworks such as Flask and Bottle.
Advanced content management systems such as Plone and django CMS.
Python's standard library supports many Internet protocols:
HTML and XML
Support for FTP,
annotations back into strings at compile time, requiring
users of annotations to eval() those strings to restore
them to their actual Python values. This has several drawbacks:
It requires Python implementations to stringize their
annotations. This is surprising behavior—unprecedented
for a language-level feature. Also, adding this feature
to CPython was complicated, and this complicated code would
need to be reimplemented independently by every other Python

...Python appeared to offer the prospect of having both clarity
and productivity at the same time. And if we ever needed to make use
of Java's class libraries there was always Jython, an implementation of
Python for the JVM. The increasing number of Python books being
published testified to the language's growing popularity, and the number
of available libraries was beginning to rival Perl's. This convinced me
to give Python a try.
Python Finds a Home

At the time of our investigation, Python had reached version 2.5, and a what
we felt was a credible level of maturity. While not a "main-stream" choice,
Python was attractive because of its cross-platform abilities and the
productivity I felt the language could bring to the team.
Some of my team members were skeptical and preferred the tried-and-true power
of C/C++ for systems programming. We decided that those members would work on
the web GUI for configuration of the product,...

systems in Python, when I'm not hacking on Python or answering
Python-related email. There are Python T-shirts, workshops, mailing
lists, a newsgroup, and now a book. Frankly, my only unfulfilled wish
