IDL and Microsoft Object Linking and embedding OLE

I have a software package called Prolith that allows "Visual Basic, C++, or other programming languages to control PROLITH from other OLE-compliant applications."

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?
