view full story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hello, I am trying to write a plugin that can send some track info to another process using tcp/ip. Does anyone know how to create/open a socket in a plugin? (I am using python for writing the plugin). I have seen examples that copy track info to the clipboard (or output it to xml. I have thrown together a py script that sets up a socket and does what I want, but not in the plugin. any ideas? thanks, Ron (HowTos)
