This is a little bit off-topic, but can you still do cool stuff using
DDE? Seems like COM/DCOM, OLE and bla bla has replaced it, or is stuff
still going on in the background using DDE? I know that Internet
Explorer uses it for some things for example. Any good sources? It is
always nice to be able to control things from emacs.
