Introduction to LibIDL

libIDL is a library licensed under the GNU LGPL for creating trees of CORBA Interface Definition Language (IDL) files, which is a specification for defining portable interfaces. libIDL was initially written for ORBit (the ORB from the GNOME project, and the primary means of libIDL distribution).
