I'm new to this, but can somebody explain this behavior to me?  Thanks!

bash-3.2$ (echo a; echo b; sleep 1; echo c) | /tmp/bar.py
line: a
line: b
line: c
bash-3.2$ (echo a; echo b; echo c) | /tmp/bar.py
line: a
line: b
line: c
bash-3.2$ cat /tmp/bar.py
#!/usr/bin/env python

from twisted.protocols.basic import LineOnlyReceiver
from twisted.internet.stdio import StandardIO

class MyLineOnlyReceiver(LineOnlyReceiver):
     delimiter = '\n'
     def lineReceived(self, line):
         print "line:", line
     def connectionLost(self, why):
         LineOnlyReceiver.connectionLost(self, why)
