Please help me pass an array from VBA to Perl and populate it. Newbie at wits' end!

Well, I went and looked at the PDK Samples I got with the distribution,
and found nothing that would help me.

Here's what I want - surely this is child's play to experienced
Perlers:

I want to pass an empty container for a set of strings from VBA into
Perl, do some stuff in Perl, and populate the Collection with a set of
strings. I've stolen most of the PDK Perlctrl regex sample and made
some small mods to it to meet my requirements.

In general, the VBA side is easy, but I do have these VBA questions:
should the array be typed in VBA as a Collection? Variant? Object?
Something else? And why? Where is that documented?

I'm at a complete loss as to what to do on the Perl side:

1. How do I specify the parameter to the method? My intuition tells me
that it ought to be a scalar that contains a pointer (reference?) to
the Collection. If I type the parameter in VBA as a Variant, say, can
I operatoe on it in Perl as an array? Should I show it as $something?
@something? Something else?
2. In the TypeLib, how do I show the parameter? VT_ARRAY? VT_VARIANT?
VT_BSTR? VT_something else?
3. Someplace I saw, while crashing thorugh endless Google references,
the notation "VT_VARIANT|VT_ARRAY" What does that mean? Where is that
documented? Is that what I should use?
4. Do I have to populate my own Perl array and then do something
special to get it into the VBA array? Or can I process directly into
it? If so, what would be the pointer/reference/dereference notation I'd
be most likely to use?
5. What notation do I use in Perl if the parameter is defined as
$something? Do I populate it by using @$something?
5. Would it be possible to populate an array in Perl and then allow the
VBA code to access the array using a get_xxx() function? If so, would
the name of that function be "get_arrayname()" where "arrayname" is the
name of the Perl array? Do all classes created by Perlctrl have such
methods created for them? Where is that documented?

Isn't there a simple example someplace that would show me how to do
this? I understand that it's not "Hello, world" but it ought to be a
common enough requirement that the problem's been solved over and over
again.

Do I sound extremely frustrated? Well, I am...

Oh, this might help too .....

There's no getting around it. We'll have to look at the VARIANT structure before we can talk about what to do with it.

struct tagVARIANT {
VARTYPE vt;
WORD wReserved1;
WORD wReserved2;
WORD wReserved3;
union {
// C++ Type Union Name Type Tag Basic Type
// -------- ---------- -------- ----------
long lVal; // VT_I4 ByVal Long
unsigned char bVal; // VT_UI1 ByVal Byte
short iVal; // VT_I2 ByVal Integer
float fltVal; // VT_R4 ByVal Single
double dblVal; // VT_R8 ByVal Double
VARIANT_BOOL boolVal; // VT_BOOL ByVal Boolean
SCODE scode; // VT_ERROR
CY cyVal; // VT_CY ByVal Currency
DATE date; // VT_DATE ByVal Date
BSTR bstrVal; // VT_BSTR ByVal String
IUnknown *punkVal; // VT_UNKNOWN
IDispatch *pdispVal; // VT_DISPATCH ByVal Object
SAFEARRAY *parray; // VT_ARRAY|* ByVal array
// A bunch of other types that don't matter here...
VARIANT *pvarVal; // VT_BYREF|VT_VARIANT ByRef Variant
void * byref; // Generic ByRef
};
};

<snip>

I'm posting a ADO wrapper class (for recordsets) I did about 6 years ago.
Its intimitaly involved in VARIANTS, which has an intrinsic language _variant_t
cast.

I am posting because you don't know what it is and you think Perl can easily
process this type of information. Maybe someone has done it, dunno. If they
have, its probably wrong.

Variants are a way to have typeless data recorded and partitioned in memory
and on persistent media. They are machine dependent, in the standard ANSI
sense. Ie: an int is not necesarily 4 bytes. What a variant does is to partition
data in 1,2,4,8 (or more) byte, definable things.

As such, it (and this is the killer) defines a structure composed of a machine dependent
variable describing the type, ie: the number of bytes the data has, and the data itself.

Except, there are endian issues and all, and still the machine dependency on the variable type
parameter. Binary data? You bet!

So I leave you with this code (its very good code too), because I would hate for good code to
go to waste that I probably won't use again. This is the part where I have forgotten more than
you will ever probably learn in your lifetime. And I still remember alot. The memory bracket
is still wide, unfortunately, theres so much that passes through it.

In the days when this was written, to think of any of this was an instant in my mind.
So I pass it on to you. But you don't care about any of this, you want a quick fix.

The point I'm trying to make is that you could go through this code and get an understanding of
variants. This was heavily used in com servers. Primarily SAFEARRAY/BSTR/Ole allocation and conversions
will be over your head but you don't need that stuff, just pick out the context of VARIANT and I'm
sure you will be able to write a 1 liner in Perl to do your conversion.

If not you will have to pay me alot of money to do it for you, and I mean alot.

Hi, Michele, and thanks for the advice.

I can't execute an external program or shove files around, because of
performance implications, mostly. I need a "sub" (but one written in
Perl) that I can call from VBA.

What did you find vague? In VBA I want to have some container that can
hold a set of strings (a Collection, an Array - I'm not picky - I'll
use what's required) that I want to populate in a Perl method. As a
template, I'm using the PerlCtrl sample program that provides a Regex
control.

VBA can call members of libraries, at least .dll.
So if there would be a perllib.dll or such, it would be possible.

Perl classes can be wrapped as COM components. See Windows Script

I'm aware of that.

I have created the Perl ActiveX control I need, and can safely travel
back and forth from VBA to Perl. What I *need* is help on the
mechanics of getting String array information back from the called
control. I am unable to figure out how to do this either through a
passed argument, or through VBA access of the control's poperties.

Right now, I'm pretty much dead in the water. I just can't believe
that this is not a problem that myriads of others have already faced
and overcome.

Let me request that you refrain from *telling* me what not to do. You

A few pointers (no pun intended) that may help - thanks!

Been there ... many times. Has some helpful tips, but doesn't solve my
PerlCtrl problems/questions. How do I define the COM interface for the
array reference I'm returning form Perl, e.g.? I must confess, though,
that upon re-reading, I've seen some stuff I didn't pick up on the
first few times I read that article. Another sleepless night looms ...

No help: single string-oriented

And are you insinuating that I should be more creative with my
Googling? I've spent many evenings on this problem and Google and I
are on inimate terms - both Web searches and News Group searches.
Since I have *no* problem passing strings back and forth (my problem is
arrays, remember? (See my previous posts for repeated references to
arrays.)) I have generally seen fit to include "array" in most of my
searching.
