I don;t pretend to understand a fraction of what your program does but I've
passed input and grabbed output from standard command line programs from LC
- building a file with the commnds to be executed
- executing a shell command for the program that redirects stdin to my
command file and stdout to a text file
- opening and reading the redirected stdout file to get the results.
