pfpro4r is a set of bindings for [2]Verisign's Payflow Pro SDK.

   If you're distributing an app in Ruby/Rails and you use Verisign's

   Payflow Pro, you basically have three options (paraphrased from the

   [3]RoR Wiki):

    1. Call the Java/Perl/PHP API from Ruby. (Ewww...)

    2. Call Verisign's command line scripts. (DO NOT DO THIS. This is

       highly vulnerable to [4]shell injection attacks.)

    3. Code a ruby extension which makes use of the Payflow shared

       library API and make calls directly from Ruby.

   pfpro4r is an implementation of the last option.
