in thread DDE calls using Win32::OLE?

I already have Win32::DDE, but the documentation says it's a low-level interface and not really meant to be used on its own. If I have to use DDE and not OLE, then that means I really need Win32::DDE::Client as well - but nobody on the Internet seems to offer it. Short of that, I need to know how to use the standard DDE calls with the base Win32::DDE.

jdporter: I'm trying to connect to ZIP4. This is a sample from the documentation:

DDECONNECT<service=ZP4, topic=Addresses> [client links to ZP4.EXE] POKE<InputOrder, Address & City> [client promises to send records wit +h address and city fields] POKE<OutputOrder, State (final) & ZIP (final)> [client wants to get b +ack the state and ZIP+4 code] REQUEST<Data & 207 grenada & rio del mar> [client sends an address to + ZP4.EXE] RESPONSE = CA & 95003-5007 [ZP4.EXE responds with state and ZIP+4 cod +e] REQUEST<Data & 401 granite & seacliff> [client sends an address to ZP +4.EXE] RESPONSE = CA & 95003-3908 [ZP4.EXE responds with state and ZIP+4 cod +e] REQUEST<Data & 207 granada & aptos> [client sends an address to ZP4.E +XE] RESPONSE = CA & 95003-5007 [ZP4.EXE responds with state and ZIP+4 cod +e] The complete list of DDE transactions recognized by ZP4.EXE is: Poke "InputOrder" <fields> Poke "OutputOrder" <fields> Poke "TimeLimit" <milliseconds> Poke "StopCASS" <filename> Execute "Refresh" Execute "Freeze" Execute "StartCASS" Request "Data" Request "ErrorMessages" Request "AllOutputs" Request "Plus4Lookup"

    You can get it from bribes. Just install Win32::DDE; it's part of that.

[1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
[Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
