Yeah, I've been told the same: this is too tough for Perl, do it in some other language. I have more code I could show you, but I am taking stabs in the dark here. I think I will put this project away on a shelve somewhere. Hopefully, it won't gather too much dust. :)

    I have no knowledge whatsoever of OLE, but it is my understanding it would be easier to access from C or C++. Couldn't you create an extention in C, bypassing Win32::OLE altogether?

    Flame notes that he has no experience with XS either.



    My code doesn't have bugs, it just develops random features.

    NOTHING is too tough for Perl, just because whomever was talking doesn't know how to do it (or do it easily) does not mean its too tough. To access C libraries you have to know C. Look at any of the already available Win32 extensions to see how to write one.
      Alright, I'll do it! I've never combined C and Perl before. It should be fun. I wonder if there are any Perl books or tutorials on the subject.
