in reply to Outlook & Win32::OLE

Here's a node I wrote, which has some sample code that might help, but more importantly, you should check out Super Search, using Win32::OLE and Outlook as keywords. Quite a broad range of (hopefully) related nodes.

    I am new to perl. I had a look at ur node, what does '-f' stand for in the statement
    unlink $temp_file_name if -f $temp_file_name;
    and what is '$|' variable?
      -f is a file test operator used to see if a file is plain text. In my code, I was just deleting the file if it existed, and probably should have used -e. More information on file test operators can be found here.

      As far as $|++, this stops the buffering of the output. $|=1 is cleaner in this case, so I've updated my old node. For more info on $|++ and $|=1, here are some interesting, relevant nodes.

[Corion]: ambrus: "the other" ;) To me, "normal" for GUIs means (0,0) is left-upper corner of the monitor/window. But for Prima, the lower-left corner it is ;)
[Corion]: Which would be OK for mathematics and paper, for me ;)
[ambrus]: Ok, so Prima has a postscript-like coordinate system
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, which kinda makes sense because Prima also has Postscript output or something, I think
