IPC with autoit

4 posts in this topic

can Autoit do any Interprocess Communication IPC (pipes, sockets, queues, shared memory, semaphores, etc)?

Can I load a .au3 file dynamically into my parent autoitscript. I.e can a autoitscript dynamically load "Plugins" at runtimes and execute it all in a single process?

I'm not sure I understand "load...dynamically into my parent autoitscript" but glance at this demo:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...showtopic=22531

Once you have multiple scripts running - you might be able to get them to talk to each other using the info posted to this other thread - starting here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...ndpost&p=153221

If I did not answer your questions - at least I gave you a free bump. :-)

Yes and No. :o

Check in the help file for subroutines, functions, FileInstall and TCP functions. What exactly are you trying to do? Your question is a bit too broad to answer to any detail.

Autoit, yes, but not 'out of the box'. It depends on how good you know how to use DllCall() :geek:

i wrote a few functions to alter another process its memory.

(see _Mem from my signature, it should give you an idee how to do what you want.)

i think this is possible but only if you run it as an au3. maby you could use #include then :o

other wise you would have 2 processes running.
