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

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.
 

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.

Working...
