Hi
Can any one help.

I am trying to write a python scipt that takes input as args and/or as piped
input ( possibly the output of another program).

I want to read stdin ( the piped  in stuuff ) whcih might be empty without
the script blocking if it is empty.

I understand it is possible to do under unix with the select call. Can some
one please explain how to do this in windows.

thanks in advance.

Barr
