Hi!
I'm new around here...
I am developing a program which needs to interact with another one in DOS, so I am planning to run that one in a DOS window and my program will need to capture and then send characters to the DOS one...
Any ideas on how to do this????

Thanx!

Any more ideas?
thanx again!!!!
