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.
This package installs the library for Python 2.
