The Lisp code that you suggested works fine but for his own
reasons Kai Kaminski opted not to use it as part of the AxiomUI

Camm, can you suggest where I should look in the GCL docs
and/or mailing list for info about calling GCL from "C" code?
How difficult is this?

Suppose I have some large program written in "C", e.g. maybe
OpenOffice or something like that :), and I want to call something
written in GCL. Can I do that without resorting to sockets etc.?

Bill Page.
