pipes

Hi. I'm rtying to use pipes to communicate between a python GUI and a
spawned C++ program. I prefer not to use forking because the app may
be run on windows, where forking isn't supported. Roughly what I'm
doing is:

(r,w) = os.pipe()
spawnl(P_WAIT, 'tool.exe', ' ', message, str(w))
close(w)
print os.read(r, 1000)

In c++ ,
....
int main(int argc, char** argv)
{

}

The 'subprocess' module provides an easier interface imo, eg:

process = subprocess.Popen('tool.exe', stdin=subprocess.PIPE,
stdout=subprocess.PIPE, universal_newlines=true)
(self.outstream, self.instream) = (process.stdout, process.stdin)
