Thanks for putting so much work into this. It looks like a great module concept. I look forward to trying this out when I get back to work.

    A developer release is on CPAN now... Ask-0.000_01.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

      I appreciate your hard work on this, even creating a module on CPAN, great! For now, I have gone with zentara's solution, because it uses Tk, which is more of a standard tool.

      Perhaps I will find some time to convert that into a Tk implementation for your module.

        An Ask::Tk is on my todo list, plus possibly Ask::Wx.

        Ask->detect will then use Ask::Tk or Ask::Wx ahead of Ask::Zenity but only if Tk or Wx is available - they'll silently fallback otherwise.

        In the future it might be possible to figure out if the user is on Windows or Mac or GNOME or KDE or whatever, and prefer the implementation which most closely matches their GUI.

        Of course, if the script is being run in a terminal and STDIN and STDOUT are connected to the terminal, then Ask::STDIO will be used.

        Update: Ask-0.000_02 now includes a Tk implementation.

        perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
