Delphi Demos: Inter Process Communication – Don Macrae

Don’s previous presentation on this topic, in November, reviewed the demo ‘IPCDemo’, as distributed by Borland. IPCDemo implemented an approach they called ‘shared memory’, based on Windows File Mapping objects. This time, Don demonstrated how the same demo could be implemented using what he suggests is the more straightforward approach, using Windows Pipes. Demo project page is here.
