True, but couldn't you just fork out a process to Perl, the location of which could be compiled in for sanity's sake, and perform the data operations?  Perhaps something like as detailed at http://www.xav.com/perl/lib/Pod/perlcall.html (and I'm sure many others).

I'm just spitballing here, but there has to be a cheaper (free) and quicker way of getting the job done.

Fair enough.  I'm a big proponent of consistency, but if it means using licensed code to get connectivity, then perhaps it's not the most effective way...?
