See more: VB Cygwin
I have two programs, a simple notepad application that i made using vb 2008, and (moses) which is an open source statistical machine translation program that i have compiled in windows using cygwin. How can i send commands from my vb application to the moses which runs using cygwin? P.S The moses application is command line and has no GUI.

Solution 1

Use Inter-Process Communications (IPC) - this article[^] specifies the standard Windows IPC mechanisms and gives C++ implementations.

I think that named pipes would be a good bet - they are available in VB[^] as well.
