If I understand you correctly:

You can use OLE Automation with any pascal compiler, but only on windos
platform. There are examples on the OO.o-site, try finding something


For OS independent programming Openoffice you'd need to port the
Delphi-UNO-bridge to an fpc-UNO-bridge.

I had some looks at the code and found nothing that could not be adapted
to fpc at first sight, but i still has to be done. Has anyone else tried
compiling this stuff (me not)?
