In any particular way? Or has it wound up on Mr. Blackwell's list of out-of-date code for 2004? Generating errors or new methods in Wx that obsolete something I've done? Help me out here.

    well, it doesn't work for me either. It seems that Wx::Image is not the current version of wx-perl. I've downloaded the lastest CPAN version (0.22) of Wx and I tried to install Wx::Image, but both failed in during the tests. So I installed the debian package of wx-perl. But no Wx::Image..

    maybe not everything has been ported from the wxwidgets 2.5 API? I have no idea...

      Actually a separate 'use Wx::Image' is now no longer needed (even gives an error). There were some other things that stopped working. I made some fixes and you may download a working version from the wxPerl Wiki.

      Don't let this stop you from using wxPerl, it's actually pretty good.

      I got this to work on wxPerl with wxWidgets release gtk2-unicode-release-2.6 and WxPerl 0.27 with the following changes (line numbers are approximate depending on how you copy the source).
      Line 35: remove "use Wx::Image" -- it's integrated now
      Line 47: change to an image I have.
      Line 54: change $bmp = $image->ConvertToBitmap(); to $bmp = Wx::Bitmap->new($image);
      Line 144: remove use Win32; and use HTML::SimpleLinkExtor;
      Line 168: remove $dir=Win32::GetShortPathName($dir);
      Line 204: Same change as line 54 above.
      Line 214: Remove $parent->Clear()
      It runs without crashing, but the ScaleImage doesn't work yet.
