Ok here is what I am asking: is there any simple way to use program to program communication in a console application. Like one asks for a number and the other displays it?

Sounds like you are asking for inter-process communications or client/server. Yes its possible, how to do it depends on the operating system and probably the compiler.

Ok, here is the info youneed: I use winxp and codeblocks copiler. All I need it to do is have a second window that shows stuff the user enters. Pretty much [cout<<"/n You Entered:"<<numone;] except numone is in a different program that is open at the same time. Edit:Sorry about the code snipit I cant get the code thing (the brakets not the code in brakets) to work.
