Check system , distro and commands using python scripts .

This is a simple example with two functions.

First will check the linux command : ls linux command.

The next function will give us some infos about system.

import shlex 
import subprocess
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE

import platform

def check_command(command):
    cmd='which ' + command 
    output = Popen(shlex.split(cmd), stdout=PIPE).communicate()[0]
    command_path =output.split('\n')[0]
    print command_path
    return command_path

def check_platform():
    arch, exe = platform.architecture()
    my_system = platform.system()
    if my_system == 'Linux':
        distro_name, distro_version, distro_id = platform.linux_distribution()
    elif my_system == 'Darwin':
        distro_name, distro_version, distro_id = platform.mac_ver()
    elif my_system == 'Windows':
 distro_name, distro_version, distro_id = platform.win32_ver()
    elif my_system == 'Java':
 distro_name, distro_version, distro_id = platform.java_ver()
    processor = platform.processor() or 'i386'
    print processor, my_system, arch, distro_name, distro_version, distro_id
    return processor, my_system, arch, distro_name, distro_version, distro_id

check_command('ls')

check_platform()

This python script can be use with any scripts when we need to test commands and system , distro version.
