Using _pipe in Windows application
Posted on 2013-06-12
Can one ue the function '_pipe' as a named pipe between applications whree there is NOT a parent/child relationship?
I have two applications that I want to have interprocess communications. One app, we'll call the server, creates the anmed pipe and the other app, we'll call the client, gets the file descriptors to the pipe by using CFile::Open then Cfile::Read. The client can start/stop at different times and is independent of the server.
So atain can '_pipe" be used in the above situation?
