Python – Shell Script: Execute a python program from within a shell script

python, shell

I've tried googling the answer but with no luck.

I need to use my works supercomputer server, but for my python script to run, it must be executed via a shell script.

For example I want job.sh to execute python_script.py

How can this be accomplished?

Best Solution

Just make sure the python executable is in your PATH environment variable then add in your script

python path/to/the/python_script.py

Details:

  • In the file job.sh, put this
#!/bin/shpython python_script.py
  • Execute this command to make the script runnable for you : chmod u+x job.sh
  • Run it : ./job.sh
