Lincoln Stein (lstein at cshl.org) is the one to answer the questions about AcePerl
and I'm sure that he will very soon.

Assuming that by "graphical client" you mean the application called xaceclient
(i.e. a client/server version of xace), then I have produced a test version of
this that uses sockets. I haven't done rigorous testing but I need to make this
available very soon because I have had other requests for it. I'll announce when
its available on this newsgroup in the next few days.

cheers Ed
