[Sidefx-houdini-list] Custom Expression's calling external language (python/perl)

Hello,

Is there a way to call python/perl for string manipulation when writing custom 
expressions?

I'd like to make a custom expression to do some string hacking in python and then 
return that hacked string to houdini. I'd like to call this expression anywhere in 
houdini that accepts strings.

Example for textport:
->echo `myWickedExpression("sourceString")`
->Returned Python altered string

Cheers,
