The TypeLib Browser is a tool designed to let you to examine the contents of COM servers and ActiveX controls and to provide alternate ways to use them or to give workarounds to features still not available in the Power Basic compilers, such events sink.

Besides letting you to inspect all the information available in the typelibs, it generates wrapper functions that use direct VTable calls.

It also has an option to generate interface definitions like the ones generated by the COM browser provided with the compiler, with the advantage that, unlike that tool, it can deal with components that don't have a ProgId or aren't registered.

If you want to do COM programming with PowerBASIC you need it!

Thanks Jose, Didn't you also write a version for Aurora or Ebasic. I know it was appreciated by the replies in one of those forums. I have yet to try it as not advanced enough to. But do know about it when the time comes.

Yes, I wrote a version of Aurora when I was interested in that compiler. However, when his author stopped the development of it, I lost interest.
