No, I will be reimplementing your script in perl to use on your site, my site, or the gimp website (depending on who wants it). I'll first, of course, have a test website so that you can tell what it's output looks like, and then I'll let you have it all.

If your web server has a python interpreter, way to go. The host I use doesn't, and I don't have the resources to keep my PC up 24/7 to use it to serve everything Python on my website. > yes, my question to you is have you read those perl docs? i recently Yup. ^^ And a few books, that are about as thick as some dictionaries. > spent sometime poking around in the gimp perl scripts. perl seems to > allow some tricks that you really have to work at to get python to do. > maybe this is just a condition of gimp perl stuff. For GIMP, at least, the interface is pretty similar, regardless of whether you use Scheme, Perl, or Python, last I checked. All you need to know is the quirks of the various systems (e.g. brackets and car/cdr/cadr/etc for Scheme). > i read some of those perl docs. did you read them and find them useful? Yeah, but I needed to supplement them with a few books to get the idea. Then I figured it out. But I'm different -- I "learnt" Turing in 30 seconds by reading the help file and fixed a classmate's code without having ever seen Turing in my life or even taking a single underlying-concept-class. But that's because I referenced the help file for every second function, as opposed to memorizing functions and using them when I need them. That only happens subconsiously with repeated use; I don't use Turing that often. > i spent about a week working with a php script. it seemed to take a > year to get rid of the smell of chauvinism from my life encounters after > this. i think they are related. the question is, pay for access to > this?

I don't think I'll go to sourceforge with this, unless you want to. ^^ I believe I've been misunderstood in a lot of contexts here; I'll need to clean up what I say before e-mailing it. It's because I have about two million ideas in my head, and I type them up as I think about them without any regard for order. > > You could always generate the content *on* the website, as opposed to > > sending it to the website... just upload all the gradients and whatnot > > and your script first, and then have the script serve it to you. > > > the web server has python2.2 and i use python2.3. when whatever of this Figures... > i am writing is working on the gimp web site, the server should have > python2.3. the gimp web server, interestingly enough, does not have > gimp installed as well. since it reads the systems gimp files, this > would be a problem. Who would install a user program on a web server? I'd probably install GIMP on my system, copy the files to the web directory, and have the script reference them.
