Comment: C not required (kinda) (Score 4, Informative) 63

by ProfaneBaby (#14247785) Attached to: Alexa Web Search Platform Released
For those who prefer "other" languages, they provide an app that (true to unix best practices) uses stdin/stdout for communicating with other programs:

The Data Retrieval API is written in C, so it may be natural for users to develop C applications against this API. However, the Platform features a utility named awsp_cat. This utility reads CIDs from stdin and writes the raw content to stdout. Users may develop applications in arbitrary programming languages to process the awsp_cat output.


Perl developers would be able to wrap this into their existing codebase in no time, assuming they want to pay the fees.
