Re: process communication

how many methods can I use in the interprocess communication in the nuix environment?

Re: process communication

At least ten ways, and about three of them also work in Windows, maybe more.

The numbers fluctuate depending on how you define "method", I took it quite broadly.

Why the hell would you want to know this? Why not ask a more practical question instead?

Re: process communication

I'm not sure which 10 i3839 had in mind, exactly...  But, here are some: signals,
pipes (including FIFOs), sockets, shared memory (of various types), semaphores,
message queues, regular files, and probably some others that escape my aging
brain at the moment...

As for what works on Windoze, I can't help you...  If I had to guess, I suspect at
least sockets and regular files work...
