We are using OLE with DLL files, Writen VB, and compiled as COM . 
No problem to get from the OLE all English&Digits, but the Hebrew chars we get : ?????????. ( ASCII 63 )
We expected to get from ASCII  224 To ASCII 250.
If we send Hebrew string directly from PHP we get Hebrew ok.
 ( We check the OLE and the DLL in ASP & IIS . We get the Hebrew OK. ) 
We are using APACHE 1.3 & PHP 4.3.2. 
It looks like Bug #9263.
We tried to write:
 $com = new COM ( "D_dll.OleDll", "localhost", CODEPAGE DEAFULT CP_UTF8 )
We get compiler ERR "....unexpected T_STRING..."

Please help ! thanks

string COM::COM ( string module_name [, string server_name [, int codepage]])



specifies the codepage that is used to convert php-strings to unicode-strings and vice versa. Possible values are CP_ACP, CP_MACCP, CP_OEMCP, CP_SYMBOL, CP_THREAD_ACP, CP_UTF7 and CP_UTF8."

The line should read:

$com = new COM ("D_dll.OleDll", "localhost", CP_UTF8);

(Disclaimer: I've NEVER used COM, I don't do windows :)
