    Loading an exe

    I was wondering if it was possible to 'Load' multiple executable files into a program...

    example:

    I code up a form of a landscape type area.

    Now I load in several different programs. Such as a bird program, a weather program. Such and the sort.

    I would prefer to do this all in console...seeing as I have only just recently begun any programming in win32.
    MSVC++~

    Why not use DLL's, or shared objects? Each DLL or SO has its own functions, you just require it to have a few specific ones that your program can call for it to perform it's actions in your virtual world.

    Well basically I want to write up 2 seperate programs and have them interacting in 'stage' program. If a DLL allows me to do this...then Ill use a DLL...but I dont think that will solve my entire problem for some reason -_-

    Well no one has presented any real options yet...

    So I was wondering if maybe I could use sort of a 'networking' idea...

    Ive been doing a few networking tutorials...and Im thinking that I could connect as many programs as I wanted...and have them interact...Im not to adept with networking...I just started learning about them yesterday...

    So unless someone posts a better Idea...I guess that is what I will go with.
    MSVC++~
