Hey guys. I've been looking all over to the answer to this but most search engines just turn up a lot of links to the same 2 or 3 tutorials. I'm writing a backup program in python, and decided to put a curses interface on it, but don't know how to run system commands without ending the curses window. e.g.
curses.endwin() # if anybody know a way around this please let me know
os.system("ssh-keygen -t rsa")
os.system("ssh " + REMOTE_MACHINE + " \"mkdir .ssh;exit;\"")
os.system("scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub " + REMOTE_MACHINE + ":.ssh/extra_keys2")
os.system("ssh " + REMOTE_MACHINE + " \"cat .ssh/extra_keys2 >> .ssh/authorized_keys2;rm .ssh/extra_keys2;exit;\"")
os.system("ssh " + REMOTE_MACHINE + " \"chmod 700 .ssh;exit;\"")
In the example, the system commands set up ssh keys on the remote machine. They require that the user hit enter 3 or 4 times. How can I output the text and get the necessary input without ending the curses window. I tried using addstr() & getstr() but I end up with either an error message or the program just hanging. I'm still kind of new to python, and I'm hoping that there's just something simple that I'm missing.
