Get the output from executed commands through android app

I’m performing the following code to execute linux commands in my android application that I’m creating:

public void RunAsRoot(String[] cmds){
            Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("su");
            DataOutputStream os = new DataOutputStream(p.getOutputStream());            
            for (String tmpCmd : cmds) {
                    os.writeBytes(tmpCmd+"n");
            }           
            os.writeBytes("exitn");  
            os.flush();
}

I want to know if there is a way to know what the command is returning after it is executing. for example, if I do “ls” I would like to see what the command wold normally output.

Answer

try this code :

try {
  Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("ls");
  BufferedReader bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(
  new InputStreamReader(process.getInputStream()));

  StringBuilder result=new StringBuilder();
  String line = "";
  while ((line = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null) {
    result.append(line);
  }
  TextView tv = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView1);
  tv.setText(result.toString());
  } 
catch (IOException e) {}
