Executing python scripts from a patcher

    Hello everyone I need some support making a patch that could launch python scripts.
    I am using the "shell" object by jeremybernstein (https://github.com/jeremybernstein/shell) but I can't make it change directory.
    The "cd" command seems not to work, as the working directory doesn't change.
    Anyway, if I move the scripts in the working folder, it still doesn't work. A sample command like "python3 /Users/username/hello.py", for instance.
    Has anyone experienced such a thing?
    Thank you

      either enter absolute path to pyhon in slash format, or try wd attribute in shell (working directory)

      With a script called "ws2sc.py" in the same folder as the Max patch, the following patch works for me:

      In Max, select New From Clipboard.

      Ok, now I can run the python snippet, but what if there are some arguments to pass through? The command should be like "code.py --file_name hello --duration 2"
