If you don't consider "fopen/fputs/fclose" to be "pure c," then you 
probably don't consider "socket/connect/read/write/ipc" to be pure either. 
Without any of those, your ability to communicate with another process is 
going to be tough.

Remember, C only has a hand full of reserved words -- ok 30*, I have big 
hands :) Everything else is somebody's library.

Walk us through what you are trying to accomplish so we can give you more 
relevant suggestions.
