Inter-script communication

Recommended Posts

Quinch

Is there a way for two uncompiled {or one compiled, the other not} to communicate directly with each other? For example;

  • Script A waits for event X to happen
  • A runs a ShellExecute on script B, passing information from X as a parameter
  • A continues doing its thing, running in a loop and keeping an eye out for other events while B executes
  • B completes and sends a result Y back to A
  • A processes Y
I've been experimenting with ConsoleWrite/ConsoleRead, but haven't had much luck. Edited by Quinch

Did you search the forum for "ISC" or "inter script communication"?

A lot of solutions pop up.

Wait, that's a thing? As in the actual name of what I was looking for?

And here it is:

I found this the other day. I'm sure it was this thread, anyway. Definately worth taking a look into. It might be an easy way to emulate multi-threading.
