I don't think so but it is my fault. When I asked the question I
thought I gave enough info but I see now that I didn't.
The os.startfile('socket-nongui.py) line was in a gui program that
demonstrates how to start and communicate with a non-gui program. It is
Windows specific so I looked for but could not find a drop in
replacement that works on Linux.
