The SWinTypeLibs package (version 0.5-1)
This package provides access to the Windows type libraries from
within S. It allows the S user to read the contents of a DLL, Type
Library or (D)COM object, and represent the resulting information as S
objects. This includes information such as classes and interfaces,
enumerations, methods and their argument and return types, etc.
Essentially, this offers a form of reflectance. This meta-information
from the type library can be used to programmatically generate
interfaces to the code described by the type library.
Type libraries can be found on the Windows system either directly or
using the Windows registry which can be accessed from S using the SWinRegistry
We provide both a source version and a binary version of the package.
See README.html and INSTALL.html for instructions on installing
and using the package.
A brief history of the recent changes to the package
are available in the Changes.html file.
There are some early attempts to document the package.
More to come!
