Hi Ben,

Thank for the information, i have been looking into 
twisted.internet.stdio.StandardIO, and it seems that what i want it 
possible with twisted.

Would anyone on this list be able to point me to some code examples 
where a twisted.protocol is connected to stdio instead of a network socket?
