I am writing an application for a my company, and I am interested in
making it very easy to hook into internal program data (like a
PhotoShop Plug-In, if you know what one of those is). What would be
the best way to do this?
I can only think of two ways to do it right offhand, but I would like
to avoid the second (call me a purist):
* Allocate shared memory to a child process, which is either an
a.out or ELF binary.
* Write the data out to a temporary file, or pipe, which the child
executable then reads.
Is there a better way?
