XMLRPC question

Hi Mark, 

Thanks for the tip.  Will check out your libSOAP, though there are some
small (but majorly significant) differences between SOAP and pure XMLRPC,
especially for the service that I'm trying to prototype for.  (basically a
client to control, provision, and monitor virtual server resources that one
has with a certain cloud VPS provider).

I would just bite the bullet and do it all in C++/Qt, but that takes quite a
bit of time, and for it to be truly cross-platform, I have to build it on
three separate platforms with modifications to the headers, paths, and
makefiles each time, which makes it somewhat cumbersome.  (Been down that
route before when I did an app for our support team that had to run on
Linux, Windows and Mac... -- actually that's the reason I bought the Mac in
the first place, and since I did I've been using it as my primary
workstation ever since, though I still extensively also use Linux, and
windows to a lesser extent -- vendor agnostic style !)

Regards, 


Leland
