About the question for recompilation; I don't want to have to make and make
install everytime I see if a function I wrote actually works. It impedes the
development hugely to have to wait 15 minutes to see the effects of what I
just wrote. And generally plug-ins don't require the whole program to be
recompiled and often when you write plug-ins for different programs, the
source isn't even available.

About the clickable; What we are looking to do is a small text-field in the
statusbar. This is where the returned string from the php script will show
up. And if the string is an URL I want to make it clickable as a hyperlink.
Pretty much like "<a href=""></a>" in HTML.

I hope I made myself understandable atleast..thanks for replying!
