I should have emphasised the word "basic".  Ices 0.3 requires a knowledge
of either PERL or Python and requires you to hook into Ices' processes by
providing various methods for it to use.  Ices 2.x however merely calls a
basic script which returns a single line stating what file to play next.
This means you can write it in anything you like.

Geoff.
