in reply to PERL OLE connection to VSS

You will want to add 'use strict;' to the top of your code and turn on warnings using the -w command line flag or 'use warnings;'. This will help you pinpoint many syntactical and other errors. See here and here for why.

You're pretty much there with your existing code, a few slight adjustments should make it work:

# the object name is actually SourceSafe.0 my $vss = Win32::OLE->new('SourceSafe.0'); # you must include the path and filename # of the vss ini file you want, e.g. # c:\data\sourcesafe\dev\srcsafe.ini $vss->Open($srcsafe_ini, $user, $pwd); # error checking if (Win32::OLE->LastError() != 0) { print 'Error: ', Win32::OLE->LastError(); }
If you're using the Activestate distribution, you should be able to use the HTML OLE Browser to see properties and methods available.
