[GRASSLIST:2087] programming interface to GRASS

Is there a way to run GRASS from within compiled code - such as
Java,C/C++,Perl,Ruby,Python, etc.  At this point it seems that I could run
a program from within the GRASS shell and interact with GRASS that way.
However, I really want to use GRASS for its analytical abilities as part
of a larger program, so I would like to have full control from that
program, and not have to be within the GRASS shell environment.  I believe
that ESRI has this capability through Microsoft COM objects. I would like
this to be on a Unix machine though, so COM is out of the question.

Thanks for your help
