Hi Ian,

When you launch a standalone from the command line, you can submit  
parameters with the command. These parameters are in variables $1,  
$2,... $n.

The relaunch command is a good option. I'm about to do this myself  
but haven't done so yet. It would be nice to trick Revolution to make  
it think that a second instance of the standalone was launched while  
in reality the command line was used, but I don't know if this is  

If you want to communicate between standalones, you could use sockets.
