Communicate with a background process
Posted on 2004-08-02
I would like to know the various possible ways to communicate with a background proces.
I need to write a program that runs in the background and take commands from any other process/command
and take necessary action...
An example of such a program (both background process and a communcator to this process) would be great.
Possibly a perl/shell script...
I know this can be done with sockets but I want to know about other possiblities. Actually, I dont want to use sockets.
