I have two Visual Basic 6 applications, both written by me, both running on the same system, and I would like them to be able to communicate. By communicate, I mean, pass string messages back and forth to each other. I don't want to use the network, or text files or anything like that.

If there is a specific function or API call I would use for this, just give me a website that explains it, or the name of the function.
