Classes and utilities for handling IPC between running instances of Editra. The IPC is done through sockets using the TCP protocol. Message packets have a specified format and authentication method that is described in EdIpcServer.
This server and its relationship with the main application object allows for some limited remote control of Editra. The server’s basic message protocol requirements are as follows.
Where the SESSION_KEY is the unique authentication key created by the app that started the server. This key is stored in the user profile and only valid for the current running session of Editra. The MSGEND indicator is the MSGEND string defined in this file (EDEND). If both of these parts of the message are found and correct the server will forward the messages that are packed in between to the app.
