OK, good to know.

OK I'll repeat: Thank you ALL, your (plural) answers ARE very useful.
However, for a newbie on Linux it isn't obvious how a Win32 application responds to a poll from/by a "basic concept in UNIX".
But as said, still from the position of a newbie on Linux, I will read up on the links provided. And try some research on how a Win32 app would handle/respond to the suggested pipe stuff.

Except for not everyone knowing about the power of Delphi (for Win32), and except for the applications that I said that I already have made (representing * man-years of development time, which would take * 10 times to write with any other tool) , and except for the loads of apps already existing out there, which drives business for billions of dollars, I have no comment on what to do whith all that valuable intellectual propery which alredy exist and which have absolutely no need to be either "fixed" nor rewritten in any other language.
