+[OleFileIO_PL](http://www.decalage.info/python/olefileio) is a Python module to read [Microsoft OLE2 files (also called Structured Storage, Compound File Binary Format or Compound Document File Format)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compound_File_Binary_Format), such as Microsoft Office documents, Image Composer and FlashPix files, Outlook messages, ...
+This is an improved version of the OleFileIO module from [PIL](http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/index.htm), the excellent Python Imaging Library, created and maintained by Fredrik Lundh. The API is still compatible with PIL, but I have improved the internal implementation significantly, with bugfixes and a more robust design.
+As far as I know, this module is now the most complete and robust Python implementation to read MS OLE2 files, portable on several operating systems. (please tell me if you know other similar Python modules)
+- 2009-12-10 v0.19: fixed support for 64 bits platforms (thanks to Ben G. and Martijn for reporting the bug)
+The archive is available on [the project page](https://bitbucket.org/decalage/olefileio_pl/downloads).
+It can also be used as a script from the command-line to display the structure of an OLE file, for example:
