After the fabulous descriptions by other people I'd like to point out
two higher level interfaces:

1) ftp://ftp.python.org/pub/python/contrib-09-Dec-1999/System/subproc.tar.gz

   A module that makes it a lot easier to interface to a process than
   just "os.popen"

2) http://starship.python.net/crew/hooft/ -> task.py

   A module that makes it a lot easier to interface to a process than
   just "os.system"

Regards,

Rob Hooft
