<summary>
Builds a Windows type library (<filename>.tlb</filename>)
file from an input IDL file (<filename>.idl</filename>).
In addition, it will build the associated inteface stub and
proxy source files,
naming them according to the base name of the <filename>.idl</filename> file.
For example,

<example>
env.TypeLibrary(source="foo.idl")
</example>

Will create <filename>foo.tlb</filename>,
<filename>foo.h</filename>,
<filename>foo_i.c</filename>,
<filename>foo_p.c</filename>
and
<filename>foo_data.c</filename>
