Python script from command line

How does one run a Python script from the command line? I can print out information on the Python window but would like to see that printed out on the standard output. "Moneydance -invoke_and_quit moneydance:fmodule:jpython:runfile?" did not help. What is the right invokeURI? This is with Moneydance 2017 (1584).

    Hi mrchapp,

    I can't help you with Python but, (1584) is an older build of Moneydance.

    The latest build is currently (1639). Provided that you DID NOT purchase MD through the Apple Store, then you can d/l the current version here:

    If you're interested, the preview build (currently 1652) can be gotten here:

    From what I can gather, this has been a long standing problem that would need clarification (or fixing). Needless to say, 1639 behaves exactly the same way.

    Windows users must pass the path of the program as an argument to the Python interpreter. Such as follows:

    C:\Python27\python.exe C:\Users\Username\Desktop\

    Note that you must use the full path of the Python interpreter. If you want to simply type python.exe C:\Users\Username\Desktop\ you must add python.exe to your PATH environmental variable.
