Anyway, if you are writing a local socket application, then you would not have this problem, since it wouldn't have any IE dependancy. I tend to use local sockets and network oriented design techniques for IPC because they transition cleanly to networked applications when the need arises. Also they are very portable, as compared to something like memory mapped files, which are a Linux/Unix thing. Another option (maybe, depending on how you like the complexity, might be POE)

One thing you have to watch for (not in this case I'm sure), though is whether a user running an application on the same machine (i.e. Linux remote users and/or Windows terminal server) can't play with the app. Local sockets bridge user boundaries, and hence can be dangerous if you don't build in the right protocols.

Nice SG1 quote by the way, but IMHO nothing can beat Tealc's "Untamed equines couldn't drag me away..."

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
