I've heard that COM is kind of on it's way out... you might want to check
out the WCF platform that will likely replace it. I don't know much about
it yet except for the usual rhetoric.

However, I'd be surprised if COM goes away that quickly. There is too much
of it in use for it to disappear overnight.

I am not sure of the best way to make this technology generally available
on the Win32 platform. I was leaning towards a COM component or an ActiveX
Control. What way could I package it so that it would be equally available
to everyone on the Win32/MFC platform?

Could be that Peter may be planning on releasing an MFC API to access the
technology. I think it's a fair question.

Can you please find a relevant newsgroup for this rather than dumping
it in a MFC ng.

I have technology that is similar to OCR technology except that it
rather than estimates its results. The main advantage over conventional
technology is that it is much more accurate with very small fonts.
testing indicates that it can achieve 100% accuracy with fonts as small
as 6
point. It also works with both types of font smoothing.

I have thought of a few different uses for this technology, I want to
see if
anyone here can come up with any more uses.
