in thread Simplest GUI with drag/drop/click on large image?

I did consider trying it out in Javascript, but I'm less familiar with how to get things done in that language. It could be a useful training exercise, if I had the luxury of time.

The problem with "in a web page" is that you generally need a web server to collect data centrally via ajax or cgi, or Javascript on a local html file needs to be allowed to write local files. Add to that the browser variation from one user to the next, etc., etc.

    The other side being, are a lot of people going to access it and would it be much simpler to allow them to access from a web page. If everyone can use one computer its fine but otherwise you'll have to get Perl and all libs around somehow (might work fine from a cd). There's going to be a learning curve any way. If you give up on the drag and drop you could probably do something that wouldn't be too complex in JS, probably simpler in other guis, too.

[stevieb]: It seems as though some Strawberry Perl downloads have incorrect checksums all of a sudden. Could someone please download http://strawberryp erl.com/download/5 .12.3.0/strawberry -perl-5.12.3.0- portable.zip and do an sha1sum on...
[stevieb]: ...it? I'm getting 309ad7a9ba74614fcd 0c65bff7ea4400c10f a92f, but the http://strawberryp erl.com/releases. html states 0e267fc2cf5a16126d a6f9520cc7664db63d 2b57 and want to ensure it's not just me
[stevieb]: ...or the proper download link and release page even...
[pryrt]: da39a3ee5e6b4b0d32 55bfef95601890afd8 0709 *strawberry-perl-5 .12.3.0-portable. zip
[pryrt]: matches neither. :-)
[stevieb]: wtf!? lol
[stevieb]: I'm checking some other versions. This is a little frightening
[pryrt]: Sorry, my bad: it was't done downloading when I did the sha1sum... now I match your 309ad... value
