communication between programs
Posted on 2001-06-20
Here's my dilema,
I have a controling program that will start off another program in a thread.
The the parent program needs to be able to pass information to the threaded program (say for example a string and a boolean), the threaded program needs to constantly accept new strings periodically being sent through from the parent program,until the boolean value is false.
I was thinking of creating a socket connection between the two programs and having the threaded program constantly listening for infomation from the parent program.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
