Hey, thanks all for weighing in on this. I got it working, it turns out pyenv, an environment manager for Python, was shadowing the Python version. tdsr is more or less exactly what I was looking for, which is to read the output of commands and review by line, word, and character. Thanks for developing it, Tyler. (And it works well with Edbrowse.)
Have a good day, everyone.
