[Interest] Piping data between QProcesses

Thank you for your guidance but I seriously have no idea what HANDLEs 
are , nor how to write code that contains elements differing for the 
different platforms, nor how to write unit tests. I guess I can read up 
on it, but it would take a lot of time and I just can't commit to that 
right now. As I do some more coding on the project and get a clearer 
understanding of the pipes/sockets/etc. system I might get to adding the 
method, but at the moment there's too many 404s for me to jump in.

PS:I searched for a synonym/noun to "unclear" but in the end remembered 
we're programmers and error codes are always an option :D
