In Chapter 5, we presented some basic material about Python and COM. If you have never used Python and COM together or are unfamiliar with basic COM concepts, you should review that chapter before continuing here.
In this chapter we take a more technical look at COM and using Python from COM. We initially provide a discussion of COM itself and how it works; an understanding of which is necessary if you need to use advanced features of COM from Python. We then look at using COM objects from Python in more detail and finish with an in-depth discussion of implementing COM objects using Python.
