Named pipes vs. TCP Channel

UJ
I have multiple programs running on the same machine that need to talk to
each other. Can anybody give me any guidance as to using Named Pipes vs a
TCP Channel?

What are the pros/cons of each?

TIA - Jeff.

Both works in the same computer, also IIRC named mipes ARE NOT supported (at
least in 1.1).

Beside of that the deciding point is ,what if at a later time you decide to
use more than one computer or in different networks? in that case you HAVE
to use TCP
