protocol buffers

Is there a way of decoding a stream of data with vb6 that is written using Google Protocol Buffers (Protobuf)?

There is a lot of extremely general information written about it in circular language but nothing that tells you exactly how it is basically structured that I could find.

It appears that the structure of the data is sent ahead of the data so changes to the structure automatically are updated without changing the Vb6 code with future changes.

Examples are published using a few other languages but nothing I can find using vb6.

I was hoping someone else had figured it out for vb6 by now?

RE: protocol buffers

Did you figure this out?

RE: protocol buffers

no - too complicated and over the top for this use.
I got the client to put the data on the site as a CSV string instead! Its only about 40k.
