Unhappy Unable to redirect script output to a file


Hi,
I have a python script that when run outputs to screen.

eg.
./international_sms_check.py 0403000511 919227434827
TS 21 check ok
TS 22 check ok
sms successfully delivered from 61403000511 to 919227434827


But when I try:
./international_sms_check.py 0403000511 919227434827 > test

The file test is created but there is nothing in it.

if I try ls > test this works fine with output of ls redirected to file test.

Can anyone help

Maybe it writes to standard error instead of standard output. You can verify using:
Code:
./international_sms_check.py 0403000511 919227434827 > test 2>&1
to redirect both to the test file.

What python statements did you use to print out the messages? The solution can be in the python code itself, but it's hard to tell without knowing how it is implemented.

YES, thank you checked code, and was exiting with 1 instead of zero.
