in thread Slashdot Headline Grabber for Win32

I actually started out using LWP; however I wrote this app to be compiled by perl2exe. The LWP version was 1.2 megs after compilation, and the Socket.pm version was just under a meg. I went with Socket.pm to save the 200K and also because it was a nice learning exercise for me in Socket.pm

Good point about the proxy though; I hadn't thought about that.

    I never tried to use perl2exe: does it work well? I also have one question: where can I find Win32::GUI is there a ppm for Activestate perl?
    TIA

      perl2exe works pretty good. It costs a little bit of money, though. I see a lot of people talking about perlcc from ActiveState; I don't know if it's cheaper.

      You can pick up a Win32::GUI PPM from http://jenda.mccann.cz

      I also host a mailing list for Win32::GUI at http://www.httptech.com/perl-win32-gui/
