HELP: Strange behaviour of subprocess

Hi there

I have installed Cygwin to my w2k machine and use
Python to execute Bash -shell scripts. I noticed
that in script below parameter "shell=Fals e"
causes raw_input() to fail; the only way to
stop script is to kill the Dos window where
it is run (The Bash shell runs OK listing
directory contents to screen).

Any comments anybody?

---script starts--
import os, subprocess, sys

try:
retcode = subprocess.call ("c:\\cygwin\\b in\\bash.exe -c\
/usr/bin/ls", shell=False)
if retcode < 0:
print >>sys.stderr, "Child was terminated by signal", -retcode
else:
print >>sys.stderr, "Child returned", retcode
except OSError, e:
print >>sys.stderr, "Execution failed:", e
raw_input("pres s any key")

---script ends--

I'm trying to use the py-gnuplot module on windows, and have been unable to get it to work reliably under Win2K and WinXP. By default, it uses popen(gnuplotcmd,'w'), but in some situations that consistently gets an "invalid operand" IOError when write() is called on the pipe. So I switched to subprocess. It works fine when executed...

The first print statement does what you'd expect. The second print statement has rather a lot of rat in it.

Those...

Hi, I've used subprocess with 2.4 several times to execute a process, wait for it to finish, and then look at its output. Now I want to spawn the process separately, later check to see if it's finished, and if it is look at its output. I may want to send a signal at some point to kill the process. This seems straightforward, but it...
