in thread what is oops

Please don't SHOUT. The question is too vague for an answer. In common English parlance, "Oops" is a mild exclamation uttered after a small accident:

open my $fh, "<", $filename or die "Oops: can't open $filename for reading: $!\n";

Alternatively, "OOP" is an abbreviation for "Object Oriented Programming", and "OOPS" might be an abbreviation for object oriented programming style, or objected oriented Perl style, or maybe even object oriented paradigm shift. We don't know the context, so can't really help much more than this. If this is something to do with object oriented perl, look at the OO docs like perltoot, as virtualsue suggested.

[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - I would assume that the onDestroy message is sent from the destructor and doesn't go through the messageloop, but maybe it is sent when a window gets destroyed but all components are still alive...
[ambrus]: Corion: partly deep source dive, partly just conservative coding even if it adds an overhead.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - no, I haven't looked at wakeup intervals ... I wonder why it should want to wakeup periodically because it gets a lot of messages from the Windows message loop (on Windows obviously)
[ambrus]: (Alternately a deep source dive and then rewrite that event loop to make it better, and then as a bonus you get an idle method.)
[ambrus]: The 0.2 seconds wakeup is likely a workaround for some bug, but I can't guess what bug that is.
[ambrus]: It's been there since Prima 1.00 iirc
[Corion]: Hmmm... Weird. Maybe it needs that for doing its timers or something. Still weird.
[Corion]: But I guess I'll find out soonish, as my application seems to use Prima for more than just displaying the OpenGL output soonish ;))
[ambrus]: No, I think the timers are handled fine in the event loop, as far as I can see.
[Corion]: So far, I liked Prima quite well as it simply seems to do what I want even if it has an upside-down coordinate system. But it installs from CPAN out of the box and is cross-platform
