IPC w/out windows.

I need to send data from one process to another process. The communication only needs to be one way. I wanted to use PostThreadMessage but there are no windows with these applications so they don't have message maps. I need to send a lot of information between these processes and I don't want to lose any of the data. If there is too much information it should be placed in a queue or buffer of some sort. All of the sample code I have found on the web is two-way communication between two or more windows. I don't think what I need is nearly that complicated. Any ideas?

I am using NT4 with Visual C++ 6.0.
