Fine, indeed ! I've installed cs.ttyy.

I just don't understand the reason why it takes "fd" as an argument.
 
I tried : P = Popen(['stty', '-a'], stdout=subprocess.PIPE, 
universal_newlines=True) and it runs fine too, so the output seems not 
really related to that fd.

Btw I did not know about namedtuple, thanks for that too.

Greatly.
