Hello beautiful people..!

i need a way to run a python program from another one...

does anyone know what is the best way to call a process which runs another program in python, and when running that child process, causing the parent process to continue without waiting for the child process to return?

To get two Python functions running concurrently, you're going to need to look at Python's threading modules.

There is a good site with example code here.

As for the main question, well, you could always exec() the second Python program from the first. But please don't do this unless you absolutely have to. A much neater solution is to import the second Python program as a module, then call its functions in a separate thread.
