For that you might try some alternate approaches: - create a command-line wrapper for the API; in zope you can then use python's subprocess module to run the perl program that will make the API calls (I am successfully using this for a certain Java API) - create a non-zope server to host the perl portion and use XML-RPC or SOAP or whatever to communicate to that from your zope app - port the perl code to python (after all you have the source) HTH, -D -- "He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." --Jim Elliot www: http://dman13.dyndns.org/~dman/ jabber: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
