in thread wxPerl tutorial 3 --

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 Blackwell's list of out-of-date code for 2004?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.

[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
[perldigious]: Even working for a large software engineering contractor that's willing to do remote could be an option. The fortune 500 company at $job-- I worked for had quite a lot of that work to hire out to large contractors.
[perldigious]: The pay and benifits leave a lot to be desired though, or so I've heard...
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, grep doesn't have an option to go recursively through a directory as far as I know.
