Of those two, the DLL interface would be more important.
If it can be implemented, there is not much need for pipe interface in Windows. (However, it could me useful in Linux where pipes are often used.)
In fact, I don't know if even Aspell could be used with named pipes in Windows, since Windows does not have option to use named pipes from command line. By default, Aspell outputs to stdout.
Related to this, an option to read and write stdin and stdout would be useful. For example, this would make it possible for a macro to display results directly into DOS window.
Vedit already has option to redirect keyboard input from a file (with Redirect_Input() ). This could be expanded to allow output to file, and then allow using std i/o instead of a file.
