DMDScript COM support (D version)?
Walter, it seems like the D version of DMDScript doesn't have COM support; is
that accurate?  If so, are there any plans to add support for it?  Or, if it
does have COM support, do you have any examples?

I like it and was hoping to use it to interface with Apple's iTunes API.

Thanks in advance. :)

That's correct. The C++ version does via the IActiveScript interface. It
isn't in the D version because there was little interest in IActiveScript
support.

Depends entirely on the level of interest in it. Unfortunately,
IActiveScript is very poorly documented and supporting it is an ongoing lot
of work.

Does that use IActiveScript in particular, or just COM in general?

Re: DMDScript COM support (D version)?
From what I can gather from the documentation, it's just COM.

If you're taking a tally to measure interest, you've got my vote.

I started to convert the iTunes interface .h header file to a D module so I
could use D, but I just gave up.  I know some c++ and am still at an early stage
with D, but I just wanted to start playing with it and converting the header
file proved more than I was looking for at the time (I'm sure I'll have another
go at it...).  But that's when I thought DMDScript might do the trick.

So I hope the D version can get COM support in the future. :)

Why not post over in the digitalmars.D group, maybe someone there will be
interested in helping out with the iTunes interface!

Re: DMDScript COM support (D version)?
I'd want COM in it, if I was going to use it seriously.
