For half a second I was ready to fling
Is it COM, Component Object Model (with it's cousin DCOM, Distributed
COM) or is it COM as in COM1:, COM2:, etc.?
at you - then I realized that grepping the web (or even the cygwin.com
corner of it) for COM is a nontrivial proposition.
I don't know from COM, but this message
indicates that, even in antiquity, a program (Perl, in this case) compiled
under Cygwin with gcc was able to use COM. The bread crumbs led me here:
where I see ole32 in the list (as I said, I don't know from COM, but a
brief surf and a test compile led me to believe that ole32.dll contains at
least some of the COM-related functions you need. I bet you can find any
others that COM requires.).
This assumes that the OP was asking about Component Object Model, but I
don't see how that can be assumed, given how little he said.
