in reply to Please reccomend a Windows Rad for Gui Programs (form designer?)

There is a project called Guido which aims to be exactly what you describe. However it hasn't been updated in several years, so I don't know what state it's in.

Personally If I needed to do a Perl GUI, I would go for something QT or GTK+ based as both are cross platform and have perl bindings and fairly mature GUI building tools in QTDesigner and Glade. Both tend to look more "modern" and polished than TK in my opinion.

[Corion]: Hmm - no, that outputs 1 for me on 5.14 - perl -wle "my $x = qq(\x{200b}); warn $x; warn length $x"
[hippo]: Smart - I'll give that a go. Thanks.
[hippo]: Ah
[Corion]: But maybe there is some other Unicode string that will be true but have a zero width
[hippo]: For explanation, I've seen this construct in someone else's code (no names, no pack drill) and couldn't think of a situation to trigger it.
[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
