Ok, I have to admit last time I tried to understand how SOAP worked was
after reading a magazine article.
But I've just checked the examples and read some more pages and noticed it
is even easier to use than XML-RPC :)
I'll rewrite the main script (currently written in PHP, reusing some html
parsing code) in Perl so I might add some BTS checks using SOAP.
So, thanks for the information :)
