Execute process and read its stdout/stderr asynchronously
I'm trying out D2+phobos on OSX and would like to write wrapper around few shell commands. 

I've found only very basic exec() and system() in std lib, but I need to launch few things at once and get all their output. 

Is there something like Cocoa's NSTask in D?

There is for D1, in Tango.  You might be able to port it over.

Er, it's in tango.sys.Process :)

For phobos 1, there's Regan Heath's old pipestream.d and process.d. 
Maybe you could port it to D 2. IIRC not all of it is in working condition.

It's here:
