in reply to Accessing IIS information

What tilly said sums it up pretty good. Win32::OLE is really just a wrapper to get at OLE stuff. Beyond useing it, all the learning is about how OLE works. And like tilly said, the little differences between the Perl - VB syntax.

Look at this for more info on the IIS provider. What they're actually using is ADSI (Active Directory Services Interface). So you're going to want to read up on that too. I'd personally suggest learning a bit more about OLE and ADSI before you try to do too much. Understanding how all this works will go a long way to making it easier to write this stuff in perl.
