( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I was reading about the Summary info only the other night in a Delphi COM Programming book. Something about Property Sheets. In a DocFile, there are streams directly off the root (where the stream name starts with, I think, 0x05). The stream you want is <0x05>SummaryInformation. If you've got Visual Studio, you can use the DocFile Viewer to look at these streams. You *should* be able to use OLE::Storage or OLE::Storage_Lite to get into these (but I've never tried it myself). I'm not sure if you are trying for a pure Perl i.e. platform-independent solution or a Windows-only one (in which case you could write a helper DLL). The underlying API calls you need are StgOpenStorage and then using the returned IStorage interface, OpenStream (dunno if you could use Win32::API with these calls?).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
