That's a long subject, but I think it describes what I'm trying to do.
I have several processes that have been started independently. They
have to pass string data back and forth. It seems to be a good idea
to me to put the string into shared memory somewhere, and pass offsets
to the actual data object through sockets.
Does this idea seem sane? Am I just creating a lot of work for myself
with little gain?
Does anyone have some C++ classes that do this? I currently use a
reference counted string implementation that works fine, and I feel
that I could modify this to use shared memory with a few days of time,
but does anyone have any words of wisdom for me.
