Python's multiprocessing

Recommended Posts

what about using popen?   you could have 2 scripts  one that runs in Houdini and calls the second one,    that way you can tell to open any program on the back, in this case python running what you need and returning it to the first script.

(pseudocode) in the main script:


results = []

for I in list:

     bla = popopen("python /path/to/second/script", stdout=pipeline, stderr=pipeline)

    std, sterr = bla.communicate()



print results



this will open pythons on the back and return what was printed,   you could also do the second scripts to export the information to txt files and then have a way to read back form that txt
