I've got the P4Python api installed and running on an ubuntu precise vagrant machine using python 3.3

I'm attempting to generate the following command:

p4 files -e //depot/path/*

in order to list all the non-deleted files in //depot/path

The command works as expected from the command line, but I have been unable to replicate it using the P4Python api.

This command works (p4.connect() has been successful)

folder = '//depot/path'

p4.run('files', '{0}/*'.format(folder))

however, it also returns deleted depot files, so I would like to add the '-e' option to the command.

I've tried the following variations:
p4.run('files', '-e', '{0}/*'.format(folder))
p4.run('files -e', '{0}/*'.format(folder))
p4.run('files', '-e {0}/*'.format(folder))
p4.run('files', '{0}/*'.format(folder), '-e')

No matter where I add the -e the p4.run call no longer produces any output.

Is there any way to exclude deleted files from the results of the command?

Your first example should have worked. Here's an example I just ran successfully:

from P4 import P4, P4Exception
p4 = P4()
  p4.exception_level = 1	# ignore "File(s) up-to-date"
  files = p4.run_files('-e', '//depot/dev/matt/scripts/...' )
except P4Exception:
  for e in p4.errors:
	print( e)
