Sockets work. You can also call rebol from the other language and redirect IO, like cgi does. And then work like tcp, only a bit safer and faster (nobody else can connect). I am not sure if that works everywhere, with apache/linux 'wait does not work. Which is needed to wait for command/response, or at least the simplest way. IIRC i tried java and perl/linux(open3) and tcl/linux sucessfull. A way i am thinking about is to use a webserver and use cgis which call other cgis as "subroutines". Slow, but most languages have good support to run as cgi. Also other languages can usually be embedded, so with /library you could call them from rebol.
