Hello everyone.. I need to have like a windows service or something, communicating with an Apache module of mine.. And well.. First, I have no idea how to make windows services (which I suppose would be best), and I have no idea on how to make two proggys communicate.. For one thing, I'd like the other app to display every request that's being made to the server.. And I'd also like to use it for searching (module tells app about search string, app searches while apache handles request further, then app replies with search info).. And no, it's not because I believe it's a good thing to do, but because I think it sounds like a funny thing to do.. So.. Any tips?

There are several solutions to IPC. The simplest solution is messages. Another possible solution is socket. The ultimate solution is COM if you want the flexibility.
