Overview#Inter-Process Communication (IPC) refers specifically to the mechanisms an Operating System provides to allow processes the Operating System manages to share data.
Many applications are both clients and servers, as commonly seen in distributed computing.
Methods for achieving Inter-Process Communication are divided into categories which vary based on software requirements, such as performance and modularity requirements, and system circumstances, such as network bandwidth and latency.
