[api wish] GDL script and add-on communication

Anonymous

I wish there would be a method to request add-on for some data from a GDL script. Just like GDL REQUEST command or so.

Not recommended at all. Use a separate text file.

Hey, this is very useful function! Maybe Akos, you know how to implement this?

I need my custom GDL object to call some method from my Add-On. There may be many reasons for this: someone wouldn't want to disclose his calculation algorithm, the calculation algorithm is very resource hungry, etc.

So it would be nice to have a generic way to call some methods of Add-On from GDL script.
