[IPython-dev] Does Ipython have the equivalent to the 'wait' keyword in bash?

I'm not sure if there is any builtin ipython magic that does this, but
one potential approach might be:


import subprocess

p1=subprocess.Popen('cmd1')
p2=subprocess.Popen('cmd2')
p3=subprocess.Popen('cmd3')

#do your other stuff

p1.wait()
p2.wait()
p3.wait()

print 'Done!'
