nice, that some posts occur in this topic, because my 30-day
board options shows now only three threads in the COM section :)

Btw. who or what is Waldo? (nice dog-name in german language :) )

Its a stupid book that came out in the early 90's in north america.. (actually alot of books about the same dumb theme)....

The book is filled with nothing other than a picture sceens with hundeds of cartoon people doing stuff and somewhere in the chaos is "Waldo"... People spent money to get these books and please themselves that they could find "Waldo" in a book called "Where's Waldo?"

Im a little hateful for that program....

When i moved to a new city at in the last month of grade 8 public school (last public school year), none of the teachers wanted to deal with me (since i have no clue what *they* have been doing all year), and stuck me in the library to play carmen sandiago for a month, till i graduated public school.... I went nutz....

Buy ya... I remember it... ./shudder/

That's sounds tradgic NaN - only because similar things happened to me. Not 'Carmen', but I did learn how to program in BASIC/Logo in third/forth grade. Didn't help my social development any, though.

The Waldo books were nice. Don't say anything bad about them,
or me and the other Waldo Fanatics will come and hunt you down.
(Joke). But actually those books were neat. Funny scenes, well drawn
(though a bit on the primitive side).

Hi, Ernie !!!

I've a question for you (well 2):

Do you know an alternative to MIDL ? (i mean a redistribuable one) and if not do you have any clues about typelib fileformat ?

Posted on 2001-11-15 09:32:34 by hitchhikr
Sorry to say that:

1) I know of no free or otherwise replacement for MIDL

2) The only published specfication for the typelib format is it shall start with the ASCII string "MSFT" (Microsoft's stock symbol).

A typelib is intentionally a "black box of information" because it's meant to be used from any arbitrary language, which forceably directs you to the COM interfaces.

I know this isn't what you wanted, but it is what is.
