[19 Dec 2010] Feature Request

Hi Andreas,

Would it be possible to add a function that would be able to check if another Hollywood program is running (or another instance of the same program)? This can be done on the Amiga side of things by assigning ARexx ports (and then checking for the existance of the port name); but it would be nice if something similar could be done also in Hollywood programs compiled for Mac and Windows.

I think that was nice to have a feature like this if possible :)

Would be a nice feature but it's not so easy... requires some interprocess communication which I'm not very familiar with on Windows & Mac. But it's been on my to do list for some time now...
