I do a lot of work with the Windows API for things such as returning the current user's hostname and IP address; pinging remote systems; FTP'ing files; listing computers on the network; presenting common Windows dialogs; and a whole bunch of UI effects. I do most of that work in VB, but a lot of it could easily be ported to LotusScript. Someone asked me about FTP'ing from Notes so I'm working on that now and will post it shortly. Would there be any interest in a series of posts along these lines that exploit the underlying Windows API?
I realize most of the network operations could be done in Java, and I also accept that doing this with Windows API calls makes it platform dependent.
