Hello Foamers,

how to run follwing command:
Code:
mpirun -np 4 interFoam -parallel > log & tail -f log
using python as command line in terminal?

My perpose is to run the command, simlutaniouly show the running log in terminal, as well as read the 'log' file using the python script and once it read the message ''Finalising Parallel run" in that log file then run follwing command:
Code:
pkill interFoam
