Documentation for type library format?

Hi -

This is pretty obscure.  I've tried Google, and Wotsit.  No luck.  Microsoft certainly doesn't have it publicly available.

Does anyone here know if there is a site that has details on the format of .tlb files?  It would require some reverse engineering, and I am hoping someone has done the hard bits.

Thanks in advance,

Aaron

Thanks, but I'm not looking for information on how to programmatically create type libraries, but for the format itself.

Glad to get at least something, though.

K. Start here http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/com/htm/custintf_1lr9.asp

You will have to cull from there. Make sure you follow through the links in the "See also" sections. I think I glanced at a "Contents of a Type Library" link.
