[MPlayer-dev-eng] Slave Mode

I am having trouble using slave mode in my C++ project. I've managed to get
popen to pipe data to mplayer, but it doesn't do anything with it until I
close the pipe, which freezes the program and doesn't allow me to do anything
after that. The code below is how I'm trying to do it, and if anyone could
help me out it would be appreciated. I'm sure someone is thinking RTFM, but
I can't find anything about how to use slave mode anywhere, except the
different commands that are available. If you could point me in the
direction of something better, that would also be very helpful and would keep
me out of everyone's hair more:-) Thanks.
if (( pipe_fp = popen("mplayer -slave playlist", "w")) == NULL)
//pclose(pipe_fp); I would rather have this here.
pclose(pipe_fp); // I really need to get rid of this
Thanks for taking the time to look at this. I know it's a very newbie type
question, but I just can't seem to get it to work right.
