It's done by having a specialisted plug-in for an application you want to embed. And it has the ability to let graphical applications dock into a gms window. I never brought this to attension I think, but it's already fully functional. I'll write a plugin 'around' the PL, do one for BL->BL communication, one for data-encryption, etc, etc. I can disable appications wrapping in Piper-mode to keep everybody happy :) > > > But, Jarl will argue that GMS can do more than just talk to Overflow. Do we > NEED the BL to talk to a node other than Overflow??? To another instance of a BL, to\from the localhost to determine the system load to name a few.
