I would like to create a program in linux that is kicked off in the startup scripts but can be connected to (preferably by something simple like 'cat pipe' or something) that allows output from the program to be seen and input to be sent to it.
I would prefer not to have to write it as a client/server program pair as that pretty much defeats the point of kicking off the 'primary' program in my ca
I want to pretty much suspend a program with a command so that the program is still running but giving me a linux command prompt preferably in a manner that I can reverse if I want to run commands with the c program. Is that possible somehow?
So, is there any good options to Skype yet? I keep wondering why no one in the OpenSource community doesn't try to come up with a similar program or at least port it but without the MS influence? With the latest news that MS/Skype keep your info or can read it, I wonder why there is not much of an alternative.
