Access C++-SimpleIPC from Python

1
Hi all,
I have following problem. I would like to wirte a string to a application written in Borland Builder. The application uses "SimpleIPC" (IPC interprocess communication). I only know the Id-name used for the IPC-pipe (is it a pipe used?) in the BC++ application.
I should like to access it on Win32 via a python script.
How can that be done ?

Here's what the creator of the Win32 package says:
I assume you are looking for the *easiest* way to do it from the POV of your
C code (otherwise you can use any technique you like, all the way to xmlrpc)
I would suggest you look at either win32 "named pipes" (and the win32pipe
module for the Python process) or simple sockets.
I've got his book; I'll look to see if there are any details in there.
