Esteemed Monks,

In my search to try and create an interface to Skype using Perl I have searched high and low for information on Perl and Win32's OLE. I am currently using Win32::OLE

I have merlyn's "Learning Perl on Win32 Systems" from 1997 - the 9 pages on OLE there only seem to echo the "use Word from Perl" or "use Excel from Perl" approach that I have also found in the monsatery and elsewhere on the Web. But of course in 1997 maybe there wasn't a lot of interest in OLE.

What other resources exist that you might know about? In particular I would like to learn about EVENTS and how to handle them. Is the Dave Roth book, "Win32 Perl Programming: The Standard Extensions, 2nd Edition" from 2001 of any value? I have never actually seen a copy in the bookstores.

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.
