I'm a first-year university student in a Python introductory course. We are doing an assignment in which we need to pipe commands from python to a java program written by a student in the University, Quickdraw http://pages.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/QuickDraw/. I tried typing medal_count.txt | C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe -jar quickdraw.jar in the Create/Run Debug Configuration in the Script box, but I got [Errno 22] Invalid argument. Process finished with exit code 2. I checked that the files I'm piping exist in the same directory as the .txt file, "medal_count.txt".
I am very new to PyCharm, but I want to learn how to use all of its features. Moreover, I am very new to programming.
How do I pipe from Python to Java in PyCharm?
