DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange)

DDE is an acronym for Dynamic Data Exchange, an interprocess communication (IPC) system built into the Macintosh, Windows, and OS/2 operating systems. DDE enables two running applications to share the same data.

Although the DDE mechanism is still used by many applications, it is being supplanted by OLE, which provides greater control over shared data.
