[gdal-dev] MapServer interface

But perhaps you can give me a clue as to how to set up a WMS and
interface with it (or where some documentation may exist online)?
I got the impression the WMS was only driven from XML files? I'm afraid
I still haven't got my head around what is a WMS and what is MapServer!

Would it work for you to setup MapServer as a WMS, then use the GDAL WMS

Still a newbee to this so forgive any daft questions.
In an answer to a previous question of mine, it was hinted (thank you
Even) that I could possibly MapServer to return tiles of rasterised
maps for display using my display application. From my initial studies,
MapServer seems to be aimed at HTML based applications. However, I want
it to return tiles of imagery which I can render using my C++
Am I right in thinking that this must be done via XML, scripts and files
(e.g. I request a tile from the server (not sure how) and it returns a
rasterised map file which I could open via GDAL).
Really, I was hoping for a more direct API whereby I can generate a
server request directly from my C++ code and get the raster tile back
similar to the GDALDataSet::RasterIO call?
