in thread Win32::GUI on 64bit Windows?

You can not install Win32 modules in x64 bit perl.

What?

The Win32::* modules in general compile and run on x64 Windows Perl. Properly written "Win32" C code compiles and runs transparently on x64. All Windows 64 bit Perls can have XS modules. XS and Dynaloader are not disabled as a security feature in Win64 Perls. Of course there are some Win32::* modules that have been abandoned for close to a decade and whether these will compile or not is random. The fixes are often small and easy if someone is inclined with C knowledge.

[sierpinski]: I've never seen $#$var before.
[LanX]: $list cops be an array ref
[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
