XML-RPC for C: Whooo! I just spent the holidays hacking on an open-source implementation of XML-RPC in portable C. You can find more information on the SourceForge page.

To make a long story short, XML-RPC packages up a procedure call as XML, sends it to a server using HTTP, and parses the response. It's mostly useful for gluing together distributed web applications, but it's also handy for cross-network scripting. There are XML-RPC implementations for Python, Perl, PHP, Zope, REBOL, LISP, Dylan, Visual Basic, and a bunch of other languages.

Thesis: Now that Christmas is over, it's time to start work on my thesis again. I've successfully modified the d2c compiler to build dispatch tables; now I just need to compress them and write about the whole experience. :-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
