Fast way to send message between 2 child processes? (using a file is too slow?)

process1_tuple = os.popen4("some code1")

process2_tuple = os.popen4("some code2")


What is fast way to send a message between process1 and process2??

process2 cannot just write to STDIN of process1  because he doesn't
have a reference to process1.  (process2 does not have process1_tuple)


The only way I could think to do this was to write and read from a file but this
is SLOW.

Is there another way **without using a file**??
