Micheal,

Your answer is really appreciated!

Do you know if I could make a web service in C++ over the greenstone
library?
Is there some functionalities that can be just called by using Perl scripts,
or everything can be accessible from the C++ libraries?

Thanks in advance for your short but helpful comments!

Regards,

Marc
