These are great news! :-))

I could pay US$ 10.00 for each set of specific
instructions for the following platforms:
Windows, MacOS X and Linux (Debian-Linspire)
that makes $30.00

Features or content?

How the external could get 
any information from the card?
What information available in
the card is not available to
the external?

You could give examples of mind 
numbing fast number, text or image 
processing, like fractals, image filters or
text encrypting... (maybe all these 
are examples too simple, don't know)

The way to return this processed
information back to the card
inside an image, a field, a variable
and even a file in the hard disk.

Or something alike... ;-)

By the way, Ben, looks like you have quite
experience in this area of c++ programming,

Could it be possible to create an external 
for RunRev that permits to use common dlls 
(not custom made dlls) from this platform? 

I think that i've seen such
creation for other development platforms,
but now, i could not find the reference.

Thanks in advance.
