I suspect your script is being run by your shell (probably bash), and
not python. Instead, try invoking it as: python ./example1, or, add
#!/usr/bin/python to the top (or wherever the python intreptor is located).
Regarding the plcmdline error, the [ ] denotes optional parameters; the
brackets shouldn't be included:
plcmdline.py -u user -r role -p pass
Be aware though that if you specify the password on the command line, it
may be saved in your shell's command history (not a good thing). If you
don't specify it, plcmdline will prompt you to enter it when running.
