    Reading from a program

    I was wondering if there was a way to transfer information from one program to another.

    I know I could do it with File i/o, but I was wondering if there was another better way to do this. Im not even sure what to search for so if someone would just throw a phrase my way

    --Thanks

    I don't know of any way easier than file IO. In fact, I can't think of anything other than file IO (with the exception of having one program connect to the other using sockets).
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
