Anyone experience a problem running a module in Boa and having it =
basicly hang, but if run from a command line prompt, the program =
executes as expected.

I'm aware of one problem. When a program running in Boa writes
more than a certain amount to stderr (e.g. errors an warnings)
the file object returned from popen just blocks forever.
I've been unable to find a workaround.

This is not the first time someone had trouble with running a script in
Boa that requires std input.
Obviously, as the script is not running from the console there is no
I've added a new feature to Boa that allows you to to specify lines
that can be fed to the input stream of a script running in Boa.
It appears as another page named 'Input' at the bottom of the Editor
next to the Traceback/Output/Error pages.
A module (or it's application) must turn on this feature under
"File->Toggle use input stream"
I'm not convinced people will realise the problem and use the new
feature, but it's now there when they do.
It should be available when I check in my (*many*) current changes
