Compressing output via pipes

Thanks but what about os.mknode() in 2.3? The docs don't say it's UNIX
only.

So without named pipes support in windoze there isn't ANYWAY to do this?

Windoze sucks.

Any possible non-portable pythonic way to do this in *nix?


Thanks again.

How platform portable? If you want to do this on Windows, you're
basically out of luck, as Windows doesn't support named pipes like this.

If you're talking just Unix variants, I'd guess that a minimal shell
script is as portable as you need.
