Hi Brad,

I'm working on this now, too.  Here's what I've got so far:

--Start Python Module--

import sys, os, string

def rn():
    """
    docstring
    """
    f = os.popen("/usr/local/Zope/Extensions/a.out")
    lines = f.readlines()
    status = f.close()
    if status:
        "There was an error"
    return string.join( lines )

--End Python Module--

--Start C Code--
#include <iostream.h>

int main(){
        cout << "13.93";
        return 0;
}
--End C Code--

Note that it works from the Python command line, but not from a Zope
external method.  I'm still trying to figure out why it is failing from
within Zope (anybody have an idea?).  It might help you as a starting point,
however.  a.out is a simple C program that just sends a string to the
standard output (cout << "13.93";).

If you get something that works, please let me know.  I'll do the same.

Eric.
