in reply to Good IPC Message Protocols?

No, it doesn't make sense to me. Why would base64 encoding make it "really hard for the server to miss-interpret the message"? I'd encourage you to not invent your own data format - just re-use an existing one. XML or YAML would both work fine for this. If you use XML you can setup something like XML::Validator::Schema (plug!) to check that the client isn't sending you nonsense.

[shmem]: I see that there is a plugin geany-plugin- codenav
[shmem]: maybe that supports ctags, check the documentation
[Lady_Aleena]: I'd have to talk to a geany person to see.
[Lady_Aleena]: Right now, I'm trying to decide whether I want to rewrite how variables are entered in the sub I'm working on.
[shmem]: wait, what? you want that person to read the documentation for you?
[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
