DCOP (desktop communication protocol) was KDE's means of communicating between
processes during the KDE 3 series.
In order to facilitate more collaboration with other Free Software desktop
projects, the version 4 series switched to D-Bus which then even got support
in Qt4 itself.
There are several D-Bus command line tools available, e.g. dbus-send (from the
core D-Bus package) or qdbus (from Qt, package "qdbus").
The latter has a similar behavior like the dcop command line tool, e.g.
invoking it without any argument shows the known D-Bus connections (programs
using D-Bus) and so on.
There is also an UI tool calls qdbusviewer, package qt4-dev-tools, which makes
exploring available interfaces easier than repeatedly calling the commandline
