Hi all!

I'd like to run something similar to shell-command-to-string, but that runs "asynchronously" in a "subprocess" in the "background". I've searched for all those things without finding anything suitable.

async-shell-command-to-string or whatever it would be called would take a callback for the string output when the subprocess is done.

Is there anything like that already?

If not, any hints on how to implement it? The async part of shell-command looks promising to nick.

Look in the Emacs manual:

  (info "(elisp) Processes")
