So far I've coded everything as process oriented rather than object oriented as that is what I am familiar with, but I'm beginning to believe that using classes is probably the way to go as it would be much easier to abstract concepts out that way. If someone has an example or two they could share with me on how to do interprocess piping in either oo or process oriented, or both, manner I would appreciate the help.

Read the documentation for os.popen. It opens the command and it's
stdin and stdout as pipes.

The commands module might also be of interest.


I got os.popen4 to sort of work, I think, as it will capture stdout from the child process, but haven't figured out, yet, how to capture that and print it to the screen so I can read the headers.
