One of my last console app was a data format translator called from two different desktop apps. One in our hands, other one not.

Due to politics (the other app was an external third party) it was easier to make it this way instead of a DLL. No need to hand out anything, just a table with possible parameters and the valid values.

They just called the app with a couple of parameters and I read the args in my main to know what to do later on, once executed... exit.

That would not be a good project for a desktop app.


Another usage... background services or many other staff that doesn't necessarily need a GUI (none or very few interaction with the user).

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
