Cool, Thanks! I'll look into this. I've never used
IPC module before. Seems like a good place to check.
I didn't do the best job setting this up, I gave this
problem as it was presented to me. One of the
stipulations as I started working on it at the board
was that everything be sorted in a single array.
"Without creating a new memory space" is what the guy
said if I remember correctly.
I'll look at IPC, thanks again.
