Is there any way to get the process id of something you run using popen*???
I'm writing a front end to MPlayer, and I'm lucky that MPlayer lets me
send a "quit" command to it... If I did not have this, how could I get
the process ID in order to send a SIGTERM later on and (maybe) reap the
mystdin, mystdout = os.popen2(myprogram)
#I'd like to kill the process here
Is this available as any attribute in any module? I'm aware of the
functions in the sys module, but they will give me info only if the
popen call throws an exception...
