Interesting that you should bring that up.. :-) My biz partner is a
perlmonger and some years ago we experimented with communicating
between rebol and perl applications via sockets. I don't have any of
that code laying around that I can use as an example, but the upshot
was that it would be very doable.
We thought about have a perl "tk server" that would take strings
from a rebol application and translate it to rendering of a tk based
gui. We also thought about having a perl "template server" (using the
perl templating features).
That discussion went to the exchange format and we thought that we
would start with something like an http query string, since the parsing
mechanism is pretty universal.
