How complex is this function? And how often might it change? If it is reasonably simple, it might be worth coding directly in php. Slightly longer, and you could compile the C program and exec() it; or, more efficiently, you could look at the source to the php extensions and figure out how to turn it into an extension. If it's really a monster, or is part of a commercial package, it might be worth exposing it as a web service; then your script can call it using a well-documented interface. -- Hugh Bothwell [EMAIL PROTECTED] Kingston ON Canada v3.1 GCS/E/AT d- s+: a- C+++ L++>+++$ P+ E- W+++$ N++ K? w++ M PS+ PE++ Y+ PGP+ t-- 5++ !X R+ tv b++++ DI+++ D-(++) G+ e(++) h-- r- y+ -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
