[wingide-users] Using subprocess in scripts

Hello all,

I'm experimenting with writing scripts.

The problem with using 'os.system' to launch scripts is that it is 
synchronous - WingIDE is blocked until the script returns.

I would like to use 'subprocess' to launch commands. The 'subprocess' 
module isn't included in the Wing 'Python24.zip', so I can't use it. Any 
reason why it isn't available ?

All the best,

Michael Foord
