IPC mechanism for Panda?

I’m in need of some IPC at the moment, just to send some messages. The amount of data is minimal as I will be just sending signals to panda and back from panda, so performance is not important.

On Windows, WM_COPYDATA is very practical, but it’s not cross-platform, obviously, so I’m looking at Boost.Interprocess.

But I’ve started doing something many times only to find out that Panda already does it, so just in case: does Panda have some IPC facility (apart from networking, which I would like to avoid) lying around that I can reuse?

Not really, no.
