Serhiy Storchaka added the comment: I partially agree with you. We must copy blocks in communicate().
Your patch is great, but I doubt that there is a best feature. If we teach communicate() to work with file-like objects, this feature will exceed your suggestion and 'input' parameter of check_output() will be redundant. Are you want to implement a more powerful feature? If not, I will commit your patch. But I hope that before the 3.4 release we will replace it with a more powerful feature. Mark, can you please run subprocesses tests on Windows? ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue16624> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
