Though it has been a while since I have made a post, things are going well right now. Since my last post, I have created a Google Code Repository located at http://code.google.com/p/subprocdev/. I have integrated, modified and written tests for the code I got from Josiah Carlson. Two of the functions he left outside of his Popen patch that were moved into subprocess.Popen. I made some aesthetic and functional changes to his recv_some and send_all functions.
Eventually, I got my code and Josiah's code just about fully unit tested in Python 2.7 and from there, proceeded to see if I could convert it over to 3.0. After I did this, I realized that it still ran, for the most part, in Python 2.7. With the following code, I attempted to get around the only thing that was causing me grief:
if sys.version_info == 3:
from io import BufferedWriter as buffer
self = a.__str__()
if b == str:
return a == b(a)
In Python3.0, the str function can also accept character encoding as an argument so I tried to overload the Python 2.7 str class to make it 3.0 compliant to no avail so I will be producing a separate branch for Python 2.7 and 3.0 development in my Google Code Repository but any suggestions on getting around the str issue are greatly appreciated.
