Sure. GIMP maintains a database of procedures. Some are provided by
the GIMP core, others are added by plug-ins and scripts. All these
procedures can be accessed from plug-ins and scripts. There are
bindings available for lots of languages including but not limited to
C, Perl, Python and Scheme. A good start is to have a look at the
Procedure Browser located in the Xtns menu and the GIMP reference
manuals which are online at http://developer.gimp.org/api/2.0/.
