Perl Gtk2 for Windows
Hey Guys, thanks for the replies!!
Awesome, you guys gave me lots to think about, thanks alot!
I do like the idea though of a single, stand-alone executable that the user will just be able to run without
needing all those packages installed on their PC...
Also, yes, I do have a windows machine that I have access to. I have a Windows XP 32-bit Virtual machine that I
use from time to time for certain things like this. So that's not a problem. That "Cava Packager" sounds pretty
cool. Maybe I'll give that a shot first and see if I can get that working.
Also, maybe you guys would know the answer to this. I was trying to test my script I have so far on my Windows XP
Virtual Machine I was telling you about. I have Cygwin and Perl installed. But when trying to execute either "cpan"
or "ppm" it doesn't work, I get the command not recognized error when I try to run them. I tried executing the
command "set PATH=%PATH%;C:/cygwin/bin" and then tried running either of those commands again and I end up with
the same error.
Any ides why this would be not working with this? It's been quite a while since I installed Perl and Cygwin so I don't exactly
remember where I installed Perl from, for example I don't remember if it was ActivePerl or what not...
I know cpan is in that directory but I didn't see "ppm" in there. If I run "dir C:\cygwin\bin | find /I 'cpan' "

Thanks again guys for the info on what I need installed, much appreciated!
I'll give a couple a shot and post back with whichever one I use...
