( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It seems that there used to be a module Win32::DDE::Client, but that module is no longer on CPAN or anywhere because DDE has since been replaced by OLE. However, while the Win32::DDE::Client interface was easy to understand:
Request(ITEM) Returns the value of ITEM from the DDE server. Poke (ITEM, VALUE) Pokes VALUE into ITEM at the DDE server. Execute (CMD) Executes CMD at the DDE server.
I'm having a lot of trouble understanding the Win32::OLE equivalents:
http://search.cpan.org/~jdb/libwin32-0.28/OLE/lib/Win32/OLE.pm

Can someone explain how I do the equivalent of Request, Poke, and Execute using OLE?

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
