For the past 25 years, I've been a contract software engineer with a lot of experience in back-end and middleware solutions; and low-level, real-time (sometimes embedded) mainly C-language projects. Also SNMPv2 and v3 MIBs and Agents. Over the years, though, I've done so many different and interesting kinds of things that I claim I can call myself a generalist.

I consider coding to be a perfectible craft with its own kind of beauty.

I'm always looking for new projects: pete@pwilson.net

@Brian B -- Heh! I'm a programmer, so to me every problem is merely a matter of a few lines of code :-)

And the answser is -- a browser extension! No, no just kidding :-) You imply that my server-side CGI could act as a connector and I'm exploring that. As you say, though, "somewhat harder :-)" Still, I've proved that such a scheme would definitely work, and not just in theory.It's the practice that's daunting. But it might be the best/only way. We can imagine the user preparing Python code on the client and shipping it via my CGI to SWIG on the server. Thank you again.
