we need to access some qnx4 native server wich originally interracts with
clients through send/receive/reply interface from perl 5.005 script. i see
write some perl/c library (through ux interface ?) in order to call
send/receive/reply directly from perl script. this would be perfect for us.
the question is how ? i didn’t found any information about it in the perl5
documentation from qnx/usr/free distributives.
write some external programm i.e. bridge between server and perl script
in order to send requests to server and get result with help of this
programm. write request from perl script to stdin of bridge and read the
result from strout. well, it seems to be quite easy, but the performance of
this bridge is seems to be unsutable
write additional tcp/ip interface on the server side and access server
through sockets. well, it seems to be slightly better, but much more
complicated to implement our api with tcp/ip + there are ten diffirent
servers so it’s time coslty to write tcp/ip wrapper for each of them.
any ideas ?
