XML-RPC For C and C++

XML-RPC is a quick-and-easy way to make procedure calls over the Internet. It converts the procedure call into XML document, sends it to a remote server using HTTP, and gets back the response as XML.

This library provides a modular implementation of XML-RPC for C and C++.

XML-RPC For C and C++ is designed for Unix and is most tested on unix. As far as we know, it works on any reasonably standard unix.

There is also lots of code to make it work on Windows, but the fact is that it probably won't work out-of-the-box on your Windows system. Here is the Windows story.

[XML-RPC protocol ]

There is a Perl module to interface to XML-RPC for C and C++. Look in CPAN for RPC::Xmlrpc_c.

For information on using XML-RPC with other languages, see the XML-RPC Web site and the Linux XML-RPC Howto.
