py3270 is a Python interface to x3270, an IBM 3270 terminal emulator. It provides an API to a x3270 or s3270 subprocess.
The x3270 executables need to be on your PATH!
A brief example of usage:
from py3270 import Emulator # use x3270 so you can see what is going on em = Emulator(visible=True) # or not (uses s3270) em = Emulator() em.connect('3270host.example.com') em.fill_field(17, 23, 'mylogin', 8) em.fill_field(18, 23, 'mypass', 8) em.send_enter() # if your host unlocks the keyboard before truly being ready you can use: em.wait_for_field() # maybe look for a status message if not em.string_found(1, 2, 'login succesful'): abort() # do something useful # disconnect from host and kill subprocess em.terminate()
None, sorry. Read the code, its pretty simple & self-explanatory :)

The interface seems sound, but the Emulator class has only basic functionality. There are more x3270 commands that the Emulator could have methods for. That being said, I believe most x3270 functionality can be supported at a lower-level by the use of Emulator.exec_command().
py3270 is installable via pip with
pip install py3270 or easy_install
