Powerbasic and ICE

We have a powerbasic client app that we would like to use ICE as the comm vehicle. The server side will be python.
Powerbasic is not .net , but can call C apps.

Any help would be appreciated,

    I'm not a PB expert by any means :) That being said there are a number of approaches that you can use to integrate Ice.

    - Write a slice to PB mapping, and implement the core directly in PB. This is huge amount of work, and will likely be quite slow. Not recommended!
    - Write a slice to PB mapping, and then implement using the C++ core. This is the approach the python mapping uses.
    - Code stubs in C++ which your PB app calls when necessary. This will be brittle in that you will need to need to change your stubs everytime the slice changes.
