IDC - The Interface Description Compiler (ActiveQt)

The IDC tool is part of the ActiveQt build system and makes it possible to turn any Qt binary into a full COM object server with only a few lines of code.

IDC understands the following command line parameters:

dll -idl idl -version x.yWrites the IDL of the server dll to the file idl. The type library will have version x.y.
dll -tlb tlbReplaces the type library in dll with tlb
-vPrint version information
-regserver dllRegister the COM server dll
-unregserverUnregister the COM server dll

It is usually never necessary to invoke IDC manually, as the qmake build system takes care of adding the required post processing steps to the build process. See the ActiveQt documentation for details.
