<Process I/O can be possible for inter-rev-app comm under some
circumstances. One standalone is the controlling app. The others
are started and ended by the controlling app. All communication is
to/from/through the controlling app. There are some gotchas in
process I/O and in using stdin/stdout, but this discussion list is
here. (The more general approach might be a tree including a chain.)>
This has got me thinking (always dangerous).
Some have lamented the lack of multi-threading in Rev, especially for
Might Dar's approach be the basis for rolling one's own multi-threaded app?
Imagine a REV CGI that talks to the Internet. Based on the type of requests
it gets, it can launch copies of itself, or other more-specialized Rev
executables, to process those requests. Using the inter-app communication
techniques previously discussed, the 'controlling app' manages those sister
Wouldn't the net effect (as it were!) be a kind of multi-threading?
