    [Release] FrodoComm, and FrodoComm Services Host

    Here are the links, explanation below.

    FrodoComm

    FrodoComm Services Host

    What is FrodoComm ?
    It's an "Asynchronous Extensible Inter-Process Communication Server"
    It's purpose is to allow interprocess communication for apps and services
    via a common interface. The docs still need to be written, but some uses
    are released as source with the app and the services launcher.

    What is FrodoComm Services Launcher ?
    It is a small inteface that supports "COM" plugins or services, as well
    as plugins written in VBScript or Javascript.
    It's primary purpose is to provide a place for hosting services that don't
    require an interface, but provide useful things. The services however
    do not have to use FrodoComm, so the launcher can be used for other
    purposes.


    Who would use either of these ?
    Well right now, since there is no developer support, no one
    But as more developers add support to their apps, the uses
    will become obvious. (4 developers commited now, including me)


    Any app can join the FrodoComm network, it is not limited to just these
    services.


    For developers, two interfaces are provided, a user control, and a class
    module. FrodoComm.exe itself should not be used directly, the control
    or class only should be used, as they are threaded when not run in debug
    mode. This prevents blocking.

    6 demo plugins with source code are provided for developers to get
    their feet wet.

    4 in VB6
    1 in VB Script
    1 in Javascript
    More language examples will follow, including C#, VB.NET, C++, and Delphi.

    I hope to be on hand to give out advice and more documentation
    as necessary for use.

    A list of dependencies for the apps is as follows:
    (Links to come, most developers will know how to get these)
    --MS XML 4 SP2 or higher
    --MS Winsock Control
    --SAPI 5.1
    --IE 6
    --MS Script Control
    --MS Scripting Runtime


    For devs wanting to check it out and start working now, check the app
    folders for some instructions and source code. Also a demo app is provided.

    Note: To bring ServicesHost visible after launching, either relaunch, or
    press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER.

    I know I haven't explained enough, but maybe you devs can ask the right
    questions so I can rectify this.

    There are also things such as:
    1. pre-defined "canned" messages
    2. language extenders for the scripting engines

    I will explain these soon as well.
    It was a lot to package up !!

    Its for developers. So expect to see more integrated development between developers
    So it will be easier for me to talk to FP, and to the program that I am making. Also FP will be able to talk to my program directly, as well as with NaviVoice. Its a web basically
    Also programs will now be able to ask others about what they are doing, etc...
