did I miss something here...if it's windoze then

run external program... eg jim > tmp.tmp to redirect o/p 

open tmp.tmp for i/p eg in reset (with filemode=$40 in windoze) so you can
read it whilst jim is writing it
(if open fails because tmp.tmp is locked, slweep for 100 msec & retry)

err that's it...

Suppose its same idea for lunix + it's variants...

(I must have missed something!)...

how can I start an external program and redirect its standard output 
so that I can use it from within my program.

I want to write a frontend.
