  • You have a python script that slowly prints output, you want to pipe the output to grep or tee, and you are impatient and want to watch the results right away. Rather than modify your script (making it slightly less efficient), use the -u option to have the output unbuffered.

    $ python -u script.py

  • Very useful for test a script. After launch this command, you only have to press ENTER for launch your script again. I work with screen and tape ENTER instead of '!!'+ENTER If you break your script with CTRL-C, it will wait for press ENTER and will re-launch You can write like it : while read -p "Press ENTER" ; do python ; done


    -2
    while read ; do python <script> ; done
