in reply to Communication between seperate scripts

What is wrong with using networking? If you use a TCP connection for example, a client can connect from either another computer on the internet and/or from the same computer. So in the case where it needs to run standalone, you can run both the client and server on the same machine and simply have the client connect to 127.0.0.1 (on the server port). In a networking situation, you just have your client machine connect to the server machine...

    If I'm not mistaking, Windows 98 will try to start Dialup networking when you're trying to connect to any IP address, even localhost...

      No-no, you are mistaken. Try it :)
        You're both correct. In some early versions of IE (or 3rd party dialers), if you tried to access say http://localhost, it would attempt to dial if a network connection wasn't already available. I think it was in IE 5 or so where this was corrected. Note that this only affected the nntp, pop(2|3), smtp, http, https, gopher 'protocols'.
