Pound is written in C, has always been in C and as far as I know, will be
written in C for the forseeable future.
The bindings currently are done in C as well, using poundctl. The XML output
from poundctl allows for easy parsing/use. (For instance, Iíve built my own
web interface using perl CGI, based on parsing the XML from poundctl)
At one point I made perl bindings (i.e. native protocol over the socket instead
of using poundctl) but they were rather brittle, and very dependent on changes
in the internal datastructures in pound. Because poundctl uses a binary
protocol that uses the same datastructures as the internal memory structures in
poundÖ itíll be difficult to port to other languages without replicating the
way C stores values in binary representation. Not that it couldnít be done,
itís just far easier to parse the text or XML from poundctl.

Hello Pound Team,
Is pound is being implemented in other languages other than C,
like Java ?
If not , how to port the same code in C to Java ?
Any help or guidance regarding this , will be appreciated.
Once again, I Apologize..
