The correct way to do it is to fetch the descriptors and look at
their exit policy. Whether a given relay is an exit router is not a
boolean thing:

Run your own Tor client (using Tor 0.2.2.x), and look in your datadir for
the consensus file and the descriptors. You can read about the formats
in the dir-spec.txt file in the torspec git repository.

And if those sentences didn't make sense, maybe you should take a step
back and explain what your script is trying to do?
