piping a stream to a python script


Hi folks,

I'm writing a python script which I plan to use in a macro for mutt,
the mailer. The script is supposed to generate and send an email
based on a mailto: url pulled out of an email header. The header will
be passed to the script in the following form, using a pipe:

<http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list>,
<mailto:py***** ************@py thon.org?subjec t=unsubscribe>

(the mutt macro looks like this:
| formail -x List-Unsubscribe: | /usr/local/scripts/mailout.py )

I'd like to capture the stream in a string object. Is there a simle
way to do this?

Thanks much,

Matt
