    Exclamation Hooking information from a third party program

    I am writing a poker program that will show how I am playing my hands into a database. I can do most of this but have no idea on how to hook information out of a third party program.

    Does anybody know of a good web site I can learn from or a quick pointer to get me started?

    I'm guessing you'll need to get the program-specific information. Is it open source or information on their website?

    It's a program that calculates, and then displays, the odds for winning a hand. All I wish to do is to take that value and use it in my own program.
