crenz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've perused the documentation of Win32::OLE, but it mentions nothing about creating your own COM/OLE servers. How can I prove to my colleague that this can indeed be done using Perl? :)

    You canīt. At least not with pure Perl. But there is the PerlDevKit from ActiveState, that contains PerlCtrl, a tool to write ActiveX-Dlls.

    Using Windows Script Components (WSC) you can put PerlScript inside *.wsc files, register them into the local COM registry, and then load up your Perl-COM components from anything else that can use COM.

    No compiling necessary.

    Take a look at ActiveState's description:
