Python Internals Serie : Subprocess.Popen

The purpose of this serie is to review some parts of the CPython’s code.

Why ?

Well there are multiple reasons :

  • Because we can. The project is opensource and the source code is freely available here : https://github.com/python/cpython
  • I strongly believe that we, as developpers, can learn a lot by studying good and clean code. And I think we can safely assume that CPython’s code, which is used practicaly everywhere, meet this crietria.
  • I also think that studying python internals can make us better python programmers, for example ever wondered why changing sys.stdout seems to have no effect on subprocesses ? Well at the end of this article You will know why.
