I have the same needs as Kirby. Also to have Jade as a Dll would reduce the
overhead of process creation.

Subject: Calling External Programmes


 I use Jade and DSSSL and I'd like to

  - be able to call an external programme whenever I
    find a particular tag,
  - pass the tag contents to the external programme, and
  - receive back (and output) the standard output from
    the programme.

 so given an SGML file containing <M>some text</M>, I'd like to
 pass "some text" to the programme, and receive "someother text

 Any pointers would be appreciated.
