I need to send a file from a server to a client machine, have the client act on the contents of the file and send a result back to the server as another file.
I looked at named pipes but this seemed overly complicated for such a simple task.
I also looked at sockets but this seemed to require that the client was also a socket server to swap files in both directions.
Anyone got an idea for the simplest way to do this and an example?
Many thanks in advance
