os.spawn[*] help

Discussion in 'Python' started by Stephen Boulet, Jul 21, 2003.

  1. Can someone who understands the os module better than I offer some insight?

    I want to open some text in xemacs (on Windows) using os.spawn[*], but I want
    the text to appear in the current xemacs window, as opposed to opening a new
    xemacs window.

    Is this doable? Thanks.

    I doubt this has anything to do with os.spawn, and everything to do with
    xemacs itself. Check the documentation on command line options for that
    program, and just pass the right stuff to it through os.spawn.

    If you can do it from the command line, you can do it from Python. Use
    gnuserv and gnuclient (maybe gnuclientw in windows). See the xemacs docs
    for more accurate information--I haven't used xemacs on windows.
