my own protocol

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, Long time no speak, but it''s time for a question again. Can someone tell me how to use the browser to launch a program? For example: irc://irc.server.com/ launches mIRC. What do I have to add in the registry?? And what special things do I have to add in my application?! I''ve heard about opening a port to loop back or something.. Can anyone explain to me how to handle multiple instances of an application? Thanks -- You''re Welcome, Rick Wong - sitting in his chair doing the most time-consuming thing..

I googled.. "protocol c++", "my own protocol c++"..
For the first problem. The second I actually just thought up while I was writing my message.

I don''t know the exact terms for the above, so all I''ve been looking at are useless documents.

If you WOULD find anything, it wouldn''t surprise me. But please give me the URL then. :D

This was covered briefly in MIND (M$ Internet Developer) magazine back in Jan ''99. You can view the article online here. Other resources can be found by searching for how to write a "pluggable protocol handler."

And no, Oluseyi, there''s not an abundance of helpful info regarding this on the ''Net

Damn it! I was almost there, then I decided to refresh this page...

Anyway, here''s a host of links to tutorials and so forth (Google).

@Pipo DeClown:
Yeah, it was tough nailing down that "pluggable" part...
