are python c-like os functions more "secure" than c's
i'm looking through the python references and it appears that python provide lots of c-os functions.
i woul like to know if i can use python that way and produce more solid code than with c.
fo example, if i produce bad c-code in the signal-handling area, i will get unfrequent bugs hard to detect. Is python more secure in such situations?
thanks for your answer.

Pythons os module is basically a wrapper of the C libraries, so apart from making it easier to catch certain errors because of better error handeling i would dout it. I may be wrong though.
