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

This library provides a modular implementation of XML-RPC for C and
The library also provides limited facilities for the
common variation on XML-RPC that uses HTTPS (SSL encryption).
The library also provides a variation on XML-RPC that works better
in some cases (but is not standard): packet
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, using Windows native
wininet for clients and Windows native http.sys for servers. But the fact is
that it probably won't work out-of-the-box on your Windows system.
Here is the Windows story.
There is a Perl module to interface to XML-RPC for C and C++. Look in CPAN for RPC::Xmlrpc_c.
