.COM or static DLL

Postby Zanpher » 27 Jan 2013, 21:48

Good Morning,

Are there plans to create a COM or static DLL client API? This would allow us to use say, c++ or any other language that can call COM or static DLLs.

A C++ API is under development. We should be able to provide a beta version within a month or so.

That is great news. As it stands, I was working on a project to wrap the .net api dll to expose it as a COM object. Then, use COMPlus for PureBasic in order for Purebasic to read and write to that library. With the DLL that you are working on ... that would remove two layers of slowness :)

Although, I guess I should ask .... is the going to expose objects or just primitives? If objects, I may have to wrap it any how. hmm.

1. Will the DLL expose objects as parameters in events and procedures?
2. Will be there will be a both 32bit and 64bit api/dll?

C++ API will not a COM DLL; it will be a 32-bit standard dll.
DLL will use objects as parameters for events and procedures

Thank you for the information. I am definitely looking forward to that DLL. On a side note, are there any plans on making a 64bit DLL?
