It sounds too easy to be impossible.
For what it's worth;
if you can that part of your application always read something particular
... say a 127.0.0.1:NNNN port.
then run the application to be displayed with the os settings to redirect
output to the 127.0.0.1:NNNN port?
For security's sake please use a port over 1024 ...
there would be a limitation with this method of text only, I think.
Any feedback from the more knowledgeable code slingers out there?
p.s. I'd love to see code on this ...
