You could try to use named pipes. There are only two problems. Pipes
are unidirectional, which means you need separate pipes to read and
write. All editors or programs may also not actually work with named
pipes. You can create named pipes with mknod command on shell or os.mkfifo()
(or os.mknod()) in Python.
