Using Python to shared memory resources between Linux and Windows

P: n/a
To All,

I was wondering if it was possible to utilize python to share a memory
resource between a linux and windows system?? It should be stated that
both the Linux (CENTOS 5) and windows are physically located on the same
computer. Is any of this possible?


Thanks,

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.

Diez,

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

There is no such thing. As I said, the two systems are isolated. For
programming purposes, consider your setup being two distinct machines.
