# The following items WILL BE done in the near future :-)
- There is a possible memory leak in Win32::OLE::Const::_Load when
this function croaks (because $Warn is set to 3) and the croak
is catched in a __DIE__ handler.
# This file contains random thoughts and notes about what might be
# changed in future versions of Win32::OLE.
# Note: No particular order, no promises!
- Test suite:
Compatibility module
PUTPROPERTY using "unnamed" method ????
- Provide access to instance data for subclassing.
Win32::OLE objects use the tied hash mechanism for set/getproperty,
so the standard way of accessing instance data is not available.
- Call SUBCLASS::__new__ for internally created objects, so that the subclass
can do additional initialisation? Function name?
- TypeInfo support
- Generic Typelib stuff
- Validate method/property parameters
- Automatically assign new OLE objects to a subclass, if that
namespace exists and it "isa" Win32::OLE subclass.
(e.g. automaticall assign all Excel chart objects to Excel::Chart)
- Better error messages
Use Grahams module when it has been accepted by p5p.
- Implement an error API that offers control over exceptional conditions
(rather than simply croak()ing, which is considered "bad" for modules)
Perhaps this can ride over a standard Exception package when it becomes
- Caching of method dispids should be done on class basis, not per object.
- Make OLE.xs thread-safe
- Provide support for OLE events, if possible
- Callbacks in a separate thread
- Through some kind of event loop
