Within Python you can use
sys.stdin to capture the STDIN input
for line in sys.stdin:
Ouput - Standard Outout (STDOUT)
Within Python you can simply use
print() to return your CSV based instructions to BotWars.
The example bot will simply instruct it's robots to move in random directions around the map, it's just to show how the input and output works within PHP
import sys import random rdm = random.SystemRandom() spawns = ["12:5", "12:12", "5:5", "5:12"] directions = ['N','E','S','W'] actions =  # Read the input from STDIN for line in sys.stdin: # Get the MapData from the input gameData = line.split('#') # Loop through each bot for nextBot in gameData.split(','): botData = nextBot.split('-') # If it's our own bot, then select a random direction if(botData == 'F'): actions.append(botData + '-M-' + rdm.choice(directions)) # Return to STDOUT print(','.join(actions))
