Using Microsoft COM components from View/Pro or Command
[1/3] from: michal:kracik at: 30-Aug-2001 15:13
Hi Rebols, has anyone managed to use a COM component from View/Pro or Command? It seems to me that 'load/library and 'make routine! are not sufficient, because COM methods are invoked with an indirect call through pointer table and not as named library functions. Before I try to write a helper DLL, I'd like to know whether anyone already has done it or whether there is a simpler way. The reason I ask for this is that lots of interesting functionality in Windows 2000 is not available (or at least documented) as shared libraries but only as COM components. -- regards, Michal Kracik

[...] I heard that Python has a good COM support. Should be instructive to take a look a the COM module sources. Here's a link to start with : http://starship.python.net/crew/skippy/conferences/ipc8/html/index.htm Regards, DocKimbel.

Thanks, I'll have a look at it.
