.STRUM is a way to easily do XHTML-RPC via REST URIs
by
providing a trivial mapping between scripting languages, XOXO lists, and XHTML forms/anchors.

Benefits:

? No need to learn/understand network
programming
? Trivial to adapt to any scripting
language
? Generally only one “right” way to encode
any given API
? Everything is human-readable
? Can use any standard browser as your REST
client
? Trivial to extent for additional
functionality
