Print to screen and save output to file

Hello,

When I run this script now I do so from the command line like this:

c:\python24\python.exe "C:\getgridprop.py" "c:\tmin\tminpro" > c:\tmin\tmin_avg.txt

This saves the output but prints nothing to screen. As I easily get anxious is there to way save the output and print to screen? This way I'll know its working.  Also, is there a way to save only what what the "print" command outputs?  I'd like to uncomment the lines below and see them on screen but not saved to the output file.

Thanks,
JE
import arcgisscripting, sys, string, os
gp = arcgisscripting.create()
gp.overwriteoutput = 1
 
gp.workspace = sys.argv[1]
InFolder = sys.argv[1]
 
 
try:
    RasterClassList = gp.ListRasters()
    RasterClassList.Reset()
    RasterImage = RasterClassList.Next()
    #gp.AddMessage("\n" + "Getting Raster Properties")
    while RasterImage:
      #gp.AddMessage("Working on " + RasterImage)
      InFileName = InFolder + "/" + RasterImage
      InPropertyType = "MEAN"
      zmax = gp.GetRasterProperties (InFileName, InPropertyType)
      print RasterImage, zmax
      #gp.AddMessage(RasterImage + " Properties have been collected.")
      #gp.AddMessage("\n")
      RasterImage = RasterClassList.Next()
 
except:
    # Print error message if an error occurs 
    print gp.GetMessages()

You could do something like below. Instead of redirecting standard output, write to a specific file. The name of the file is provided as the last parameter on the command line:

c:\python24\python.exe "C:\getgridprop.py" "c:\tmin\tminpro" c:\tmin\tmin_avg.txt

import arcgisscripting, sys, string, os
gp = arcgisscripting.create()
gp.overwriteoutput = 1
 
gp.workspace = sys.argv[1]
InFolder = sys.argv[1]
 
Outfile = open(sys.argv[2],'w')
 
try:
    RasterClassList = gp.ListRasters()
    RasterClassList.Reset()
    RasterImage = RasterClassList.Next()
    gp.AddMessage("\n" + "Getting Raster Properties")
    while RasterImage:
      gp.AddMessage("Working on " + RasterImage)
      InFileName = InFolder + "/" + RasterImage
      InPropertyType = "MEAN"
      zmax = gp.GetRasterProperties (InFileName, InPropertyType)
      Outfile.write(RasterImage + " " + str(zmax) + "\n")
      gp.AddMessage(RasterImage + " Properties have been collected.")
      gp.AddMessage("\n")
      RasterImage = RasterClassList.Next()
 
except:
    # Print error message if an error occurs 
    print gp.GetMessages()
 
Outfile.close()

cxr:

I get the following error message:

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>c:\python24\python.exe "C:\Documents and Setting
s\Owner\Desktop\getgridprop2.py" "c:\downloads\tmin\tminpro" > c:\downloads\tmin
_avg.txt
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\getgridprop2.py", line 8, in ?
    Outfile = open(sys.argv[2],'w')
IndexError: list index out of range

Please advise,
Thanks again,

Remove the > character:

c:\python24\python.exe "C:\getgridprop.py" "c:\tmin\tminpro" c:\downloads\tmin_avg.txt

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks this worked.  Does the 'w' in this line -- Outfile = open(sys.argv[2],'w') -- mean that this file can be written in? And what would happen if you didn't include the 'str' in this line: Outfile.write(RasterImage + " " + str(zmax) + "\n")

Thanks again,
JE

Yes, the 'w' means to open the file i write mode.

>> what would happen if you didn't include the 'str'

If zmax is an integer, you would get the error "TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects". If it is a float, you would get the error "TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'float' objects".
