If the computer is set up with networking, then you can use UDP over
You can also use files, maybe something like this. The sender, A,
can write a file "tempAToB", wait until there is no "AToB" and then
rename "tempAToB" to "AToB". The receiver, B, might look for the new
"AToB", read it, and delete it. For very short messages, just rename
the file and look for changes. You can also use multiple files as a
queue in alphabetical order.
