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))
print os.read(r, 1000)

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

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

process = subprocess.Pope n('tool.exe', stdin=subproces s.PIPE,
stdout=subproce ss.PIPE, universal_newli nes=true)
(self.outstream , self.instream) = (process.stdout , process.stdin)

Hello I would like to call a unix shellscript from within a PHP script and - write data to its STDIN - read data from its STDOUT *and* STDERR - get its exit code afterwards proc_open seems to be the right thing to use but I have the problem that the called program gives >8kb data on both stdout/stderr back which causes my PHP script to simply hang in the fread call. To be precise the first 4096 "O" characters are read and displayed. ...

Hi, sorry if you found I have multi posted in different groups. It didn't appear in that group.

And then get the results out of it. Just like when we debug with gdb, we type in those commands, and see the results. But this has to be done in an...

In the process of doing some routine monitoring/clean-up we've discovered that several (many?) users are apparently set to access our SQL Server 2000 database instances via the Named Pipes protocol. In readings and recommendations we've decided that our WAN would be best served if we use the less "chatty" TCP/IP. As such we've also decided to try to enforce this decision to use TCP/IP exclusively using the domain login script used by all...

Hi, DB2 7.1 FP11 Windows 2000 Earlier this evening, after dropping and recreating a trigger, DB2 locked up. I am not entirely sure that the cause of the problem was the replacing of the trigger, but all of a sudden no users were able to connect to our customers database. After running db2dart I found numerous corrupted indexes which I removed using "db2dart MYDB /IM". Finally I was able to get a

Hi, does anyone have an idea for this problem: I use anonymous pipes to steer a console program under Win2000 with a second 'steering aplication'. The stdin and output are redirected to pipes. The console application has several fgets() and fgetc() to read strings and chars. This works very fine with the pipes.

Is there any built-in facility for handling named pipes in C#/.Net, or must one use unsafe code to access the WIN32 API directly? There exists some code that uses named pipes heavily and there exists a need for that code to send some information to a new .Net service I am writing. It is a relatively simple matter for the existing code to use a named pipe to send the data, but I can find no references to how I can create the named pipe...

I'm having some trouble implementing the handling of multiple pipes in a shell I'm writing. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction because I really cant see where I'm going wrong. Its supposed to work as follows: main shell forks off a child shell, the child shell sets up the pipes and forks off n-1 other shells (where n is the total number of commands). Each child shell sets its pipe file descriptors then execs to...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
