in reply to Windows GUI programs in Perl

Win32::GUI was written for this very reason. It's fairly cryptic if you haven't worked with Win32 APIs, but there are examples floating around (Super Search turned up a couple-three).

    I found two threads on it via SuperSearch, and just posted another top-level node on that. I'm familiar with the Win32 API, and that module is still cryptic. For example, the inline POD's tell of options for creating a window, but no documentation of the base class options that work for all widgets and are mentioned in the Q&A section here, like -size => [$x,$y] which is rather important, and no clue about the message loop thing also seen in the example.

    When I ran that example, or anything else it seems, I get a null pointer error.
