I spent half a day trying to convert this bash script (on Mac)
textutil -convert html $1 -stdout | pandoc -f html -t markdown -o $2
into Python using subprocess pipes.
It works if I save the above into a shell script called convert.sh and then do
subprocess.check_call(["convert.sh", file, markdown_file])
where file and markdown_file are variables.
But otherwise my piping attempts fail.
Could someone show me how to pipe in subprocess. Yes, I've read the doc, especially
But I'm a feeble hobbyist, not a computer scientist.
