mode parameter in popen2-4

In the popen docs, a file like object is returned,
and may be read to or written to depending on the
'mode' parameter ('r', or 'w').

Why is the mode parameter needed for popen2 and greater,
when both a stdin and stdout object is returned? One
wouldn't want to 'append' to a stream.... is it because
binary mode can still be turned on and off this way?

Thanks,

Tobiah

OK, I've got a weird one I haven't been able to figure out yet. Admittedly I haven't had time to dig into the library source, but this behavior certainly doesn't seem right.

This could possibly be a bug, but I don't understand it fully so I'm posting here first. Searching the list told me other people are having this problem too. I have created a class which inherits popen2.Popen3. The problem is that popen2.Popen3 does not define a __del__ method to handle proper closing of the pipes or destruction of the...

I've written a couple of apps that required running a command and grabbing the output, and I've found the existing interfaces problematic for this. I think the proliferation of functions and classes in the popen2 module illustrates the problem (popen2.{popen2,popen3,popen4,Popen3,Popen4}) Now if I want to read both stdout and stderr...

How do I automatically redirect stdout and stderr when using os.popen2 to start a long running process. If the process prints a lot of stuff to stdout it will eventually stop because it runs out of buffer space. Once I start reading the stdout file returned by os.popen2 then the process resumes. I know that I could just specify > /dev/null...
