I am using zope on windows with an external python method to backup my
database. I am struggling to run the following command:

pg_dump.exe database > file

I have tried using os.popen - no luck
and also subprocess.Popen.

eg:
import subprocess
       
subprocess.Popen(['c:/dir/dir/pg_dump.exe','database','>','c:/dir/dir/out
put  file'])


- play with the shell=True|False parameter of Popen()
- why do you use redirection since Popen() provides a proper mechansim for
 reading stderr/stdout
- where is your code where you are calling wait()???

Please try again...
