En Wed, 20 Aug 2008 04:56:32 -0300, aditya shukla
I found something interesting while working in idle.I have windows vista

if i do
import subprocess
=subprocess.Popen('cmd.exe',stdin=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
output = proc.communicate('dir\n')[0]
print repr(output)

This dosen't work in idle
Works fine for me, using Windows XP
