As of today, the LJPOST client works without any major incidents. The whole code is pretty okay, but I'll have to work things out a bit. The bloody thing is leaking memory somewhere, and I have to plug things up. Gah. Damned C string management. (Oh yeah, C doesn't have real string management.)

I was planning to add a real scripting engine, but I've decided to go small for now. I'm working on a small language that'll allow me to use the client for basic batch processing. I was going to embed Python into it, but I realized that it would be better to just create a separate LJ extension for Python in the first place. Then I thought I'd use the ActiveX scripting engine (as per mart's suggestion). Hmm... will work on it.

I'm writing it completely in C, and compiling it on MinGW GCC (not Microsoft Visual C++). So, if it'll compile safely in GCC, then I assume it'll compile anywhere.

It'll be fairly easy to port it anywhere. The only Win32 code I really use is the WinSock interface, and only to initialize the library. No Win32 API calls, no external DLLs needed.
