CMD is out. It's a touchscreen interface for my car
What I meant was, you could fairly easily control a command line player from perl using whatever GUI you want*. Unless you need very tight control, you don't have to run the audio stream through the perl process.

* for example, mplayer has single-key commands for almost every action. it's probably not very hard to wire that to a perl program.

    Gotcha, still out though. Yes, I want it fairly tight, one of the reason I dumped XMMS. In all fairness, it worked quite well for the most part, but occasionally it would lag too much which would make the interface sluggish and a bit unintuitive. For instance, anything that modified the playlist would take forever, (sometimes more than a minute).

    I suppose I could just use it to play and manage the playlist myself, but detecting song changes was hacky. I figured if I could just use SDL and SDL::Mixer, I could have a fairly portable solution. :\
