I'm setting up something where I'll need to be able to setup a service that accepts input on a TCP port and then parses the XML provided and extracts the necessary data, then posts that to Google's universal analytics via HTTP GET.
What is the easiest thing to use for this? Perl? C? Are there any libraries that you know of for those languages that would make this easier?
A little bit of background: I'm trying to export data from a POS which has a "Security DVR" output option for basic transaction info (X item added to invoice, $50 cash was paid, etc). I'm outputting this info to this server that I'd need to setup, and then exporting that to Universal analytics. This will allow me to see sales volumes in google analytics.
