I think understand your question, you would like to be able to open the cmdline, using Python, and have Python send commands to the cmdline? If so, "subprocess" is a preferred library: import subprocess cmd=['echo hello', 'dir'] for each in cmd: process=subprocess.Popen(each,stdout=subprocess.PIPE,shell=True) output=process.communicate()[0] print(output.decode('utf-8')) That should print out cleaner

You can refer to a python file using the command above, run what you want, and then continue. The user must have Python modules though.
