ptyprocess: Python interaction with subprocesses in a pseudoterminal#
Launch a subprocess in a pseudo terminal (pty), and interact with both the process and its pty.
Sometimes, piping stdin and stdout is not enough. There might be a password prompt that doesn’t read from stdin, output that changes when it’s going to a pipe rather than a terminal, or curses-style interfaces that rely on a terminal. If you need to automate these things, running the process in a pseudo terminal (pty) is the answer.
Ptyprocess is under the ISC license, as code derived from Pexpect.
ptyprocess ==0.5.1 # :issue:`31280`#comment:42 and following # sagelib is not compatible with ptyprocess 0.5.2, 0.6, and 0.7
Equivalent System Packages#
macports: install the following packages: py-ptyprocess
$ sudo zypper install python3-ptyprocess
$ sudo xbps-install python3-ptyprocess
See https://repology.org/project/ptyprocess/versions, https://repology.org/project/python:ptyprocess/versions
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see github issue #29023
