all true, but platform difference should be minimal, and somewhat platform-specific.

When speaking on non-platform specific GUI element, it should behave everywhere consistently, that is why first attention should be paid to logic and widget, and only afterwards we should consider whether misbehaviour is $^O-specific!

BTW I've never thought of Perl/Tk's fileevent as non-working on Windows
Did you encountered difficulties with it?

    Yes. I've had some terrrible problems with fileevent.

    Setting one up has caused my socketeering programs to hang indefinitely. I tried several different ways of opening the socket before passing it to fileevent for read/write polling, but got the same behaviour everytime. Then I hit the web (it was before my days on PerlMonks) and found a few references to "We're working on fixing this! It's broke on Windows!" At said point, I wrote a $mw->repeat to accomplish c-style polling.

    Perhaps in the near future I'll present this problem to the monks. It seems a good idea...

    Peace, monks. I'm off to work.
