console application interrupt another console app. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to get a console application to interrupt another one, say every two hundred milliseconds, in assembly language? It just has to let the interrupted program know that is has timed out. Has to be in assembly. Where can I look? I see lots of stuff in C++ and C# (whatever that is). It doesn't help.

  • One application can create a named event using CreateEvent. Then set it using SetEvent.

    Another application can open the event using CreateEvent or OpenEvent, then check periodically or wait for the event using WaitForSingleObject.

    What other approaches did you consider in C++ and C#?
