    I had a look, it's very busy and not that well laid out. In the end I didn't need it as I discovered that the pump only speaks on baud rate and that piece of information was not available when I started the exercise. Once I had the baud rate and an external program that talks to the pump I was able to get Perl to converse with the pump.

    The hard part now is getting Perl on Windows to talk to KSH on AIX called from SAP R/3. I suspect installing Apache and running my Perl application under CGI is the easy way to do this without having to build the whole application in a standalone Perl daemon (service).

    Still having to use Windows is like having an Emery Paper Enema...
