Basic python question


Thanks Aldwin that helps but it looks like it is reversing the numbers
for some reason:

the df command returns the following:
7  2

I used your example and did:
x,y = set(output.split())

My assumption would be that x should be 7 and y should be 2.  However,
when I print x and y it seems to be reversed (x is 2 and y is 7).  Am
I missing something?

Thanks
