Send and receive files between applications?

Post by trenatos » Mon Jul 29, 2013 10:46 pm

Are there any built in functions for sending and receiving files between two LC applications?

I don't want to use an FTP or other intermediary storage solution.

I'm currently using sockets to communicate between LC applications but need to expand to transfer files.

You can use sockets to send the files, just open in binary mode so the files do not get corrupted..
