Re: MacHTTP, Applescript and MCL

Our experience with AppleScript <-> MCL interfacing is that it is
_very_slow_. By very slow, I mean that to send a message to an
application and get an answer back takes on the order of 2 minutes. The
application (FileMaker) processed the request under 1 second, so the
delay is entirely in AppleScript. 

If anybody out there has a secret to better performance, I'd like to
hear it, but unless you have a very non-time-critical application, I'd
look for another way.
