- Subject: io.popen() equivalent in nixio?
- From: Jorge <xxopxe@...>

With vanilla Lua I can do
local f = io.popen('cat /proc/cpuinfo') -- runs command
local l = f:read("*a") -- read output of command
How do I get the output of a external program under nixio? It will be a
long running process, so i'll have to feed the filehandle to nixio.poll,
create an iterator, etc.
It will be under Linux, if that helps. I suppose I could do a
nixio.fork() followed by a nixio.execp(), but that gives me only the
pid... Where is the stdout for it?
Thanks in advance,
