in thread Win32::GUI sending Windows messages between threads [solved]

I definitely need the child thread to run for a long time -- possibly the entire lifetime of the program. Sounds like you're suggesting I essentially poll inside the timer handler. I am considering that as a fallback if I can't get the message passing thing to work, but ultimately it's polling and it's inefficient and the message passing approach seems much better, so I want to pursue it first.
