9300 python question

Hello,

 

I'm using the guest shell in on a 9300 and trying to save a run config txt file and then print out the run config txt file in the python interpreter. But it's not working, see below:

 


>>> cli_output = cli("sh run")
>>> type(cli_output)
<type 'str'>
>>> f = open("run_config.txt" , "w+")
>>> f.write("cli_output")
>>> print f
<open file 'run_config.txt', mode 'r' at 0x22b4d20>

 

I'm expecting to see the run config file print out on the interpreter but it's not happening.

 

Also how can I scp this file over to my desktop? Do I need to copy it over the switch directory? Not sure how that's done.

 

Thanks

>>> print f 

 

for line in f:

    print (line)

Re: 9300 python question

Thanks for the reply, so I tried the for loop and getting the below:

 

>>> f = open("run_config1.txt" , "w+")
>>> f.write("run_config")
>>> for lines in f:
... print (lines)
...

>>>

 

 

>>>
>>> f = open("run_config1.txt" , "w+")
>>> f.write("run_config")
>>> f1 = f.readlines()
>>> for lines in f1:
... print lines
...

>>>

 

Don't think I'm getting the right result?

 

Thanks

Maybe close file and open again

 


f = open("run_config1.txt" , "w+")
f.write("run_config")
f.close()
f = open("run_config1.txt" , "r")

for line in f:

    print (line)

Re: 9300 python question

I see the issue when I just try reading the file, it only outputting "cli_output" , it's not storing the value of the variable in the file:

 

>>> f = open("run_config.txt" , "r")
>>> contents = f.read()
>>> print contents
cli_output

 

how can I pass the contents of the variable to my txt file?

 

Thanks

Re: 9300 python question

So i'm not sure if this is it, but in you're first post, you're doing

f.write("cli_output")

 

did you mean 

f.write(cli_output)

???

 

could have something to do with it.  after this test, would you mind pasting the results of a 

dir() and vars()

on both cli_output and f after the write?
