ICE and Perl

I am considering using ICE for an application where we have a lot of existing Perl code. Generally we are using C++ for server type apps and Perl and client type apps. We would really like to be able to access the server using ICE from the Perl clients.

Can you suggest what would be the best way to do this?

    Hi,

    We don't have any plans to add an Ice mapping for Perl, and I assume that you would prefer not to have your Perl clients spawn an Ice client written in another language. So unless there are some cross-language techniques that would allow you to utilize one of the existing mappings from Perl, I'm afraid I don't have any good suggestions for you.

    Take care,
    - Mark
  • Thanks - I thought that might the answer.

    I'm looking into using SWIG in some way. Either to wrap the ICE interface, or to provide a parallel interface to ICE.
