pipe command to script

How can I read input from stdin pipe from somewhere?

ex:
# echo hello | script.py

I was thinking opening file() or popen() with sys.stdin, but that
didn't work. I've done this before but don't have the code anymore and
can't figure it out again.

Thanks.

sys.stdin is already an open file object. Just call sys.stdin.read( ).
Thanks.

Nice, that's easy. I did it some other way last time that worked
also..... probably doing things twice the other way though.

Thanks!

Hi experts, I need to write a perl script that will be called from a series of executables chained thru pipes that read from STDIN and writes to STDOUT. The following code works fine under regular circumstance. But when there is a error down the pipe in one of the executables, the pipe closes and then this script just exits. It does not print line 14. The troublesome line is line number 17. If I comment it out, the script completes. From...

I am trying to implement the UNIX pipe command using C but with the "->" operator. Everything works fine with 1 pipe, but when I try to use 2 or more, it hangs up when reading the pipe_in filestream. If ANYONE could offer ANY suggestion as to why this is happening it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

While studying iterators and generator expressions, I started wishing I had some tools for processing the values. I wanted to be able to chain together a set of functions, sort of like the "pipelines" you can make with command-line programs. So, I wrote a module called iterwrap.py. You can download it from here: http://home.blarg.net/~steveha/iterwrap.tar.gz

Hi, On a Linux platform, I have the need to call a compiled 'C' program from a PHP script (to do some special authentication), and to keep the information passed from the PHP script to the compiled 'C' program secret, i.e. the information should not be passed on the command-line. The PHP pipe manipulation functions (such as popen) were suggested to me. Where can I find out more about pipes, specifically:

Suppose I have a PHP script that I call at the Linux command line (Ubuntu), and it gets all the paths to files and directories that exist inside of some directory. All this data gets stored in an array. How do I get this array to another PHP shell script? Can I use pipe? /etc/getAllPathsForDomain 'thesecondroad.org' | /etc/ findFilesUpdatedInLast24Hours Is the syntax basically right? Is this how I should build it?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
