Getting stdout/stderr from CPython in Java #107

When running a Python script from inside Java, using CPyhon().exec(script), I couldn't figure out a nice way to obtain the stdout/stderr from the Python script in my Java program. I worked around it by writing to a file instead and reading that file after the fact, but this isn't exactly convenient.

Am I missing something, or if not, is this possible to fix?

It might be a neat idea to have some option to CPython().exec that did the redirection, something like what's done in Python's subprocess module. I don't currently have time to implement something like that, so I'll leave this issue open for now.

Writing to a file is not a bad strategy. You might also consider passing a Java object into your Python script and then your Python script can save your data in the Java object.
