subprocess pipe and wait deadlock

Posted on: March 4, 2011

p = subprocess.Popen([executable, args], stdout=subprocess.PIPE)

p.wait()

this will deadlock if executable outputs fill up the in-memory buffer and thus stops until someone reads from that buffer

in essence, don’t wait on a process that can output something. use  p.communicate() for this purpose
