OS: Unix based, DOS/Windows
How do I comunicate 2 diferent app, what I want is to call one program from another one, and get an answer from the second one, maybe send another call depending on the answer.
For example, comunicate with mysql, send a query and see the result. I know that there are Libraries for this specific task, but I whant to know how to do it in general.
I have seen some people recomending Sockets, Pipes and Standard I/O library, wich one do you think is the right one?
I´m not plannig yet to stablish communication between two or more computers, every app would be running in the same machine.
Thanks in advance.
