Recently, a type lib importer was added to FPC, made by Ludo.
I've played a bit, by running them against all TLBs on my, and in some of
the larger tlbs there are problems:
in activeds.tlb, there is a fragment that references non existing
identifiers that have "internal" naming:
ADSTYPEENUM = __MIDL___MIDL_itf_ads_0000_0000_0001;
ADS_OCTET_STRING = __MIDL___MIDL_itf_ads_0000_0000_0002;
__MIDL___MIDL_itf_ads_0000_0000_0002 = packed record
dwLength : LongWord;
lpValue : PByte;
Similarly, the huge mshtml (IE9) html had several failures. The first two
1. defining true=1 and false=0.
2. Somewhere a pointer type was referenced before definition (one line
lower) (same code fragment as (3), see below)
3. same problem as activeds, types that have "internal" names.
//records, unions, aliases
wireHDC = P_RemotableHandle; // problem (2), only defined
a line lower
P_RemotableHandle = ^_RemotableHandle;
_RemotableHandle = packed record
fContext : Integer;
u : __MIDL_IWinTypes_0009; // (3) unknown problem.
