I don't see how pipe() and system() work together. Maybe you mean
popen(), which is kind of a cross between pipe() and system(), handling
the common cases of writing to a process's stdin, and reading from a
process's stdout. With both io.pipe() and os.spawn(), one could write a
pure Lua implementation of io.popen().
Yes, sorry, I meant that sometimes I find popen() to be useful for
executing external programs, and at other times I find system() useful
for that purpose.
