eBay Web Services has been so successful that many language vendors are beginning to take notice, as well as a number of third parties. The following list presents a few of the most interesting places to find eBay Web Services information. However, you should also check with the vendor that creates your programming language product and look around at other third party solutions too. For example, the "Microsoft Office 2003 Add-on" section describes how Microsoft is adding Web services support to their Office product.

Although the Perl Server Side CGI Scripting site at http://www.webmasterworld.com/ forum13/ doesn't have a wealth of working examples, you can find some interesting PERL code and discussion about working with eBay Web Services. For example, the discussion at http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum13/3261.htm contains an example that appears to work fine (the author of the article couldn't get it to work at first and found that it worked fine later). Note that you need to join the Web site to see some of the resources provided, including the second URL.
