Peter, you can email support at runrev.com and ask for the Externals SDK,
or look for it on metacard.com.
An "external" is C library (.dll/.bundle/.so) that the Rev engine loads
and defines new transcript handlers and functions that are implemented
in C or whatever language.
The Externals SDK consists of a couple of example projects, but no
documentation. Docs are expected to be forthcoming.
