First you need to setup your environment as per the $HFS/houdini_setup*
scripts - either by using these shell scripts - or creating a python version
that sets the same variables, and then launches Houdini in a subshell.
hython - command line python interpretor with hou module loading. Use
#!/bin/env hython in executable python scripts under *nux
Also of interest: startup scripts for loading python custom modules inside
You'd be lucky to get the hou module to load in Maya. These are compiled
python extensions that usually link against different compiled libs. As far
as I know the best you can do is use xmlrpc or a python subprocess with an
env arg to spawn one app from the other.
