The above error message happened when i tried to reanme one of my filenamesfrom

its greeklish name to greek charcters.

files.py is a script that allows users to downlaod fiels form my server.
But i wish to presnt filename sin Greek and not in Greeklish

http://superhost.gr/?page=files.py
as it is now.

What can i do to make pth script accept greek filenames too?
Why does subprocess is complaining?

i tried encode and decode

elif page.endswith('.py'):
htmldata = subprocess.check_output( '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/' + page )
template = htmldata.decode('utf-8') + counter

bu still same error when i rename a filename with greek letters.

Any ideas? is this a bug?

You are not offering enough information, because you have not posted the
contents of your files.py script. Thus it's difficult to help you. Please
post your code to pastebin or somewhere similar because posting long lines
on usenet is considered bad etiquette.

Also, few here know what "greeklish" means, and most of us who know would
like to forget.

I would much prefer to have a code snippet that shows the problem
inline. Plus, what happens in six months time if someone finds this
thread but can't find the code online as it's expired?

I agree, and this is also the policy enforced in freenode #bash.
Please do not encourage people to pastebin entire scripts, because
very few people will bother to read them. The ideal approach is to
post a minimal code snippet that allows us to comprehend or reproduce
the problem. This encourages the question to be well-framed. Otherwise
idiots will dump their entire scripts into a pastebin and write to us
"why it not work?".

CalledProcessError: Command '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/files.py' returned non-zero exit status 1
args = (1, '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/files.py')

returncode = 1
with_traceback = <built-in method with_traceback of CalledProcessError object>

The traceback indicates that files.py terminated with a non-zero exit
code, indicating an error.

And that's *all* that can be determined from the information which you
have posted.

If you want to solve the problem, you'll need to make files.py generate
useful error messages, then capture them.

OK George, nd the rest fo the guys here it is the snippet of files.py responsible to print the greek filenames:

for row in data:
(url, hits, host, lastvisit) = row
shorturl = url.replace( '/home/nikos/www/data/apps/', '' )
lastvisit = lastvisit.strftime('%A %e %b, %H:%M')

print('''
<form method="get" action="cgi-bin/files.py">
<tr>
<td> <center> <input type="submit" name="shorturl" value="%s"> </td>
<td> <center> <font color=yellow size=5> %s </td>
<td> <center> <font color=orange size=4> %s </td>
<td> <center> <font color=silver size=4> %s </td>
</tr>
</form>
''' % (shorturl, hits, host, lastvisit) )

and here is the the metrites.py snipper that calls files.py via subproccessto run:

if page.endswith('.html'):
with open('/home/nikos/public_html/' + page, encoding='utf-8') as f:
htmldata = f.read()
htmldata = htmldata % (quote, music)
template = htmldata + counter
elif page.endswith('.py'):
htmldata = subprocess.check_output( '/home/nikos/public_html/cgi-bin/' + page )
template = htmldata.decode('utf-8') + counter

print( template )

I'm serious. Why do you feel entitled to assistance, when you won't
even put some effort into your posts? You loudly proclaim that you've
"spent days looking for a solution" to some problem, yet you can't
spend thirty seconds polishing your post before you hit Send?

I call bogus (others may use some other b-word) on the whole "spent

I'am an OP like everybody else in here and i don't demand anything.
But ome people instead of being helpfull or even ignore, think its better to belittle me. You are a special case, because you do both(you ahve actually provided me hits manh times), but that is not the case of some other regulars.

Yes i have and i wasn't able to find something other that this maybe be a bug.

The only thing I'll contribute is that if you're looking to run a
commercial venture, you wouldn't be the last on my list for services,
you'd never get on it.

Further I'll point out that you never give any indication at all of ever
doing any research before you ask a question. You simply fire off email
after email in the hope that you'll get a response. Luckily for you a
substantial number of people have come to your rescue. Unfortunately
for you, you've exhausted the patience of a number who might well have
been extremely helpful *IF* you'd put in a little effort. That is just
too much to ask of course.

*IF* ?
So, you think i'm not putting any effort?

Almost always i post out snippets of what i have tried in my numerous attempts to solve some issue i've encountered.

Putting forward effort and being able to actually solve a problem is two difeerent things.

Where is your attemps to provide an actual help to me for once
It is not obligatory of course but a matter of good will, but instead of doing that, you choose not only to not help or at least ignore, but consistently making fun at my expense.

I don't think, I know. How can you be putting in any effort when you
give yourself no thinking time? When you ask for a response maybe two
hours after you've first posted? Basically you're using this group as a
*FREE* technical support service. If you want something done to suit
you, either put the effort in first, show some patience, or *PAY* for
support.

Certainly *not you*, since you not proven yourself knowlengeable to me or in the case you are, certainly not helpfull but ironic instead.

This is a a *free* python list.
Everybody receiving help in here does nto have to pay. this might be a simple trick like the other issues i had with the pymysql connector where it needed 'charser='utf8'' instead of 'charser='utf-8'' which is what i was trying. Couldn't think of the dash because in any other case i happened to make use of 'utf-8' in my scripts, it was mentioned with a dash inside the statements like:

print( '''Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8\n''' open('/home/nikos/public_html/' + page, encoding='utf-8') as f:

So i assumed, 'charset=utf-8' too, didn't occured to me an other symbolism.

Paying for someone to just remove a dash to get the script working is too much to ask for, but paying for someone from this list to convert my scriptsto Django, and i will at some point because this site advertises webhosting is logically. I want the scripts to user latest versions of python and the best code it can be done so, to be quick and functional.

I cannot of course expect someone to do the conversion for me for free.

Paying for someone to just remove a dash to get the script working is toomuch to ask for

One dash: 1c
Knowing where to remove it: $99.99
Total bill: $100.00

Knowing that it ought really to be "utf8mb4" and giving hints that the
docs should be read rather than just taking this simple example and
plugging it in: Priceless.

So how much to solve this issue too Chris?
And would you spare me the charge for the dash(-) problem which you pointedout and solved? :)
