I have a software package called Prolith that allows "Visual
Basic, C++, or other programming languages to control PROLITH from other
You can write a program in C++ and make calls to Prolith routines. ProLith
then return the data back to the C++ program.
This sounds allot like the "call_external" command in IDL.
They go on to define OLE as object linking and embedding that is a "strategic
technology from Microsoft that is the standard for application integration
and interchange in Windows."
Is there anyway that an IDL program can access the OLE ProLith routines
the same way a C++ program can?
