Oh, yea, "|" should work fine because it uses the shell. pipe manual
The popen() function ``opens'' a process by creating an IPC connection,
forking, and invoking the shell.
The command argument is a pointer to a null-terminated string containing
a shell command line. This command is passed to /bin/sh using the -c
flag; interpretation, if any, is performed by the shell.
so we are find with pipe already.
