Using Python to shared memory resources between Linux and Windows

What you have said is extremely concerning.  
I am now using VMware.  With Linux as the Master and windows as the
guest operating system.  I was wondering if you have ever had to develop
a share memory resource between Linux and windows within a Vmware setup?

Thanks for the help.  I will not be forgotten,

David Blubaugh

No, not as that. You can use IPC-mechanisums such as XMLRPC, CORBA or
Pyro. But software such as VMWare or VirtualBox tries hard to *not* let
guest and host os influence each other.
