#27 Add ability to use IPC Control Interface to Windows


The Windows version of mpg123 doesn't support IPC communication with mpg123's process through the "Control Interface" (the one activated by passing the "-R" command line option)

    I am one of the developers working on the Windows side of things, its true that the Windows port doesn't do IPC mostly because nobody has implemented it yet.

    MSDN has an article <http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365574%28VS.85%29.aspx> on IPC, "Using Pipes for IPC" looks promising.

    @jon_y: thanks for your reply. But, does this mean that adding IPC capability to the Windows version is planned?

    Yes, but unless somebody else does it, it won't be implemented soon, as I am currently busy with work.

    I should have some free time during around December/January.

    I forgot to announce --fifo option is now implemented in trunk for Windows, do read the MSDN link to find out the naming convention for pipes.

    Thanks for working on this. Some confirmations of users would be nice ... perhaps we could provide a win32 / win64binary of http://mpg123.org/snapshot for that?

    Anyhow, this request is about fixed now thanks to JonY, it will be closed once a released mpg123 with the feature exists. That will be version 1.14.0, according to the plan.
