Can I access perl application API's from python

P: n/a
Hi,

I would like to use Python for several scripting tasks I have, but the
applications I am scripting against only export a set of Perl API's.
Is there any package that makes it easy to use an application's Perl
APIs from Python. Essentially I am looking for a package that would
read a perl module and allow me to access the functions in that module
from Python. For example the Communigate Pro messsaging server has a
Perl api, but not a python API (they also have a java API if that
helps).

Please reply to me directly as I do not read this newsgroup.

cheers,

ski

Since they have a Java API, I'd suggest you try Jython.
