"XML-RPC is a simple, portable way to make remote procedure
calls over HTTP. It can be used with Perl, Java, Python, C, C++,
PHP and many other programming languages. Implementations are
available for Unix, Windows and the Macintosh."
"Here's a short XML-RPC client written in Perl. (We use Ken
MacLeod's Frontier::Client module.)"
$server = Frontier::Client->new(url => 'http://betty.userland.com/RPC2');
$name = $server->call('examples.getStateName', 41);
"...In the following chapters, you'll learn how to write XML-RPC
clients and servers in a variety of programming languages."
