Making Programs Talk to each other using XML-RPC

The Internet has changed the way applications are built today. In the last few years, we have seen a sudden burst in Internet software – Instant Messengers, Online Gaming, etc; all based on the client-server architecture. With all this client server technology, we also have to ensure compatibility between languages, and operating systems. XML-RPC is one way to do this.

Finally finished upgrading to Version 2.5. This is the reason I moved to php from perl. I uploaded all the files, ran the script, and what do I get? The Internal Server Error 500. My webserver can't handle perl scripts in DOS format, so you have to convert it into UNIX format. It took me an entire week of research to get this thing right - 6 days to find the batch converter, and 20 seconds to convert all the files.
