This is especially true if you are making an embedded application or something that functions more as a system service or daemon. In this case you probably end up creating some simple network protocol which you use to control your application via some other remote piece of software or just telnet if you are feeling especially lazy. Another option is to create a web interface and this article shows via a simple example how you can do that in C++ in just a few lines of code.

I've looked for some modules and plugins that could be added to Joomla or Mambo or Drupal but came up with nothing. I wouldn't mind writing one from scratch, but I'd like to find out if there's anything available on the internet that I could use.
