RPC and Perl

During the last couple of years, the idea of a simple to use RPC system for Perl has been on my mind. I’ve done several designs, mostly focused in object oriented perl, but never did one I really like.

It’s been a challenge that I pick up whenever I can.

Today, Ricardo pointed me to mod_perlservice, a very simple RPC system for Perl. I’m still looking into it, it seems to be function-oriented, not object-oriented, but it also seems extremely simple to use. As a added bonus, it has clients in C and Flash out of the box.

I’ll have to do something with it to test it out, don’t know what yet.
