The vbACOM library is a DLL designed to allow Visual Basic control developers
the same flexibility available to control developers using "lower level" languages.
The way that the library provides this flexibilty is through exposing the COM interfaces
that are supported by all ActiveX controls, but are kept hidden from the VB developer.
Although this "behind the scenes" automatic handling of some of the more tricky aspects
of COM programming is one of the greatest strengths of VB, it can also hamper the developer
who needs to get down to the bare bones and do some really hardcore stuff.
