Does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to make two programs interact (in C++)? (w/o using sockets etc.) For Example: Writing a C++ program to fill out a form online. (Bad example, but along those lines thanks) "Arguing on the Internet is like winning in the Special Olympics, in the end, you''''re still retarded"

Do you mean two programas that you''ve written, or one program you''ve written, and one you haven''t?

In the second case, the best way to do it is via window messages. I wrote an MSN bot by doing that (Although now the MSN window seems to be one window, so i can''t get the history window or the message window )
If you''re doing that, look into FindWindowEx() and those sort of functions.

I guess an MSN bot would be a slight example? Its just basically to KNOW, but i''m sure i''ll code something up to teach myself.

Are there anyways other then FindWindowEx()?

Any good tutorials?
