You need to use

Now I get "Command 'pyflakes c:\programs\python34\lib\turtle.py' returns
non-zero exit status 1" on both. On Idle, as least, a command-prompt
window is flashed/displayed. It makes no sense to me that in the command
'pyflakes c:\\programs\\python34\\lib' works and
'pyflakes c:\\programs\\python34\\lib\\turtle.py' returns status 1.
whereas both (with quotes elided and undoubled \) work at the command

I am not 100% sure whether that is the problem, but from what I gather from the subprocess module docs the args string is passed to the Windows CreateProcess function as a single string. To me this seems to imply that it is passed as the lpCommandLine parameter (with Null for the lpApplicationName parameter). This is what Microsoft says about this case (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682425%28v=vs.85%29.aspx):

If lpApplicationName is NULL, the first white space–delimited token of the command line specifies the module name. If you are using a long file name that contains a space, use quoted strings to indicate where the file name ends and the arguments begin (see the explanation for the lpApplicationName parameter). If the file name does not contain an extension, .exe is appended. Therefore, if the file name extension is .com, this parameter must include the .com extension. If the file name ends in a period (.) with no extension, or if the file name contains a path, .exe is not appended. If the file name does not contain a directory path, the system searches for the executable file in the following sequence.

So in your case the default behavior would be to add an .exe extension to pyflakes, which is probably not what you intended ?
