# Using Hudson/Using other shells (for ex. Python)

This article is a stub. It will be expanded as content is migrated from the Hudson-CIWeb site.

On Windows using cmd.exe can be a burden. Fortunately Hudson allows the use of other shells.

A different shell can be used for each "Execute shell" build step of a job - even on Windows.

Note the inline help for the "Execute shell" build step type.

Examples of "Execute shell" build steps for Windows using Python as the shell:

```#!python.exe
print 1```
```#!C:\Python25\python.exe
print 1```

Note that you can also pass parameters to the shell, like:

```#!python.exe -u
#From "python -h": -u     : unbuffered binary stdout and stderr (also PYTHONUNBUFFERED=x)
print 1```
