Hi David,

Yes, this is pretty straightforward in YAZ if you go under the highlevel 
APIs. If you look at the sample client (yaz-client), you'll see that 
internally it does just this. There's a function z_APDU which handles 
encoding or decoding of Z PDUs depending on how it's called, and a COMSTACK 
which encapsulates the TCP/IP stuff. You don't have to use the COMSTACK at 
all if it doesn't suit you.
