Re: subprocess.Pope n on Windows

I am trying to use subprocess - it basically works but.

p = subprocess.Pope n(command, stdin=subproces s.PIPE,
stdout=subproce ss.PIPE)
pout = p.stdout.read()

This works for me but I see the Windows command window, is there a way
to call subprocess without a command window showing?

I am trying to replace:

fdout, fdin = popen2.popen4(' ping -n '+ str(count)+ ' -l '+ str(size) +'

Which did not show the command window.

I did quit a bit of googling bug so far did not find an answer to my

Appreciate any hints on how this can be accomplished.


p = subprocess.Pope n(command, shell=True, tdin=subprocess .PIPE,
stdout=subproce ss.PIPE)

Hi. I wondered if anyone knew the rationale behind the naming of the Popen class in the subprocess module. Popen sounds like the a suitable name for a function that created a subprocess, but the object itself is a subprocess, not a "popen". It seems that it would be more accurate to just name the class Subprocess, can anyone explain why this...
