SPUG: Geocoding System

The folks at geocode.com (Tele Atlas) provide batch geocoding services as
well as client/server products (I think, I didn't read carefully). They
also provide sample client code in C that talks to their servers for
one-off geocoding. I didn't feel like getting a user account with them
just to see the C code, but I'm guessing that it could either be Inline'd
or the socket protocol could be reverse-engineered to a pure perl
implementation. Of course, if these folks are smart, they've already got a
XMLRPC/SOAP interface out there just waiting to make you happy.

Andrew B. Sweger -- The great thing about multitasking is that several
                                things can go wrong at once.
