It is explained in the subprocess methods of the event loop.

Well, I expected this reaction: the subprocess documentation is currently splitted in two parts (event loop and asyncio.subprocess). IMO all functions related to subprocess must be moved to the subprocess page.

Here is a patch to group all subprocess documentation. I added a "Connect pipes" section, mentionned that event loop functions are the "low level API" whereas the asyncio.subprocess is the "high level API".
