[lammps-users] error when running python script to call lammps

Dear Lammps users,

I've wrote a python script (attached) to call Lammps and do some analysis. However, I found the script runs fine if I directly use:

but will generate the following error if I use:

Error message:

File "", line 55, in <module>

Could you please help with this problem? Thank you!
