Sample .ODL File

     uuid(2F6CA420-C641-101A-B826-00DD01103DE1),            // LIBID_Hello
     helpstring("Hello 1.0 Type Library"),
   library Hello
   #ifdef WIN32
         uuid(2F6CA422-C641-101A-B826-00DD01103DE1),        // IID_IHello
         helpstring("Hello Interface")
       interface IHello : IUnknown
           [propput] void HelloMessage([in] BSTR Message);
           [propget] BSTR HelloMessage(void);
           void SayHello(void);
