Call Google geocoder from Links
I have an existing directory with a moderate number of links and I want to add Google Maps. The easiest solution would be to create geolatitude and geolongitude fields and call a routine from inside the detail page that just says if they are NULL, geocode. Then it would use the address info to get the geocoordinates from google.

What's the best way to do this in Links? I already have php code that can do this. Can I call PHP from perl? Or can this be done in a subroutine, or do I need to write a plug-in?

I guess in the worst case I can have an external program just query the database and write the info for the existing data ...

Thanks
