Yeah, my school blocks it too :cry:
I re-did the code for Python 2.6, feel free to do whatever you want with it.
Code: Select all
import os, subprocess

while True:
   current = os.getcwd()
   print ''
   command = raw_input(current + '>')
   if command.upper() == 'EXIT':
   if command.find('cd') != -1:
      command = command.replace('cd ', '')
      data = subprocess.Popen(command, shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE).communicate()
      data = data[0]
      print data

Compared to your original program, I think this is a much better approach to things, especially since os.system is obsolete; use subprocess.Popen() instead, happy programming :mrgreen:
