My problem is that I need xmlrpc-c (preferably the C++ bindings) on
windows. I have just started to build xmlrpc-c on windows, but no
success yet, seems to be quite troublesome. Are there any other xmlrpc
libraries for C/C++ around with prebuilt binaries that work in a
client/server configuration with Python as a xmlrpc server?
