I need support with a little "program" I'd like to add to my retropie

I want to know if there's a way to register the times the select button is pressed in my retropie and then reflect the numbers in another computer trough a link using the IP or anything else so I can have track of how much credits the arcade has accumulated, salutations.

@iLouzze there are quit a lot of arcade games / systems that store a lot of statistic information by themselves.
Have a look at the menuitem "bookkeeping" in the service-menus.
There you can see how much coins have been inserted in total, the average playtime per coin, how often "continue" has been used and many information more.

@sirhenrythe5th I think the objective is to track in real-time the 'insert coin' on some machine so as to, my wild guess, charge the usage of the games. The problem is that you need to capture the select button only when you're running the emulator, and when it actually equates to an insert coin event. It's an interesting and not so easy to solve problem (apart from modifying the emulators to do this tracking somehow)
