in thread pp with gui

So, did you even go so far as to search google using these messages, or even the first one? You reported this problem two weeks ago, various suggestions and diagnostic avenues have been suggested, most of which you seem to have ignored. Your code provided is essentially a copy/paste from this SO post, with an additional button on the GUI, which includes one solution (already suggested here). If explicitly linking a library ensure they actually exist at the path you provide.

If you want to use tool to successfully achieve a goal you need to learn how they work and how to use them. If people make suggestions it's usually not for their own good. If someone suggests various things to try, try them all before replying

The example works properly with the pp call provided under Windows 7 with Strawberry Perl.

    I explained in another post why I haven't had a lot of time to work with this. Under normal circumstances yes it would be good to learn the tool inside out and only then ask questions. Right now this is a side issue that I just need to get working for a specific purpose. I have done everything that I knew or figured out how to do (read the old posts). I have been sending the output as I do them in hopes it will point someone more knowledgeable to the problem. What is the sense of me going step 1 though 10 if someone could have looked at step 5 and saw the problem. If you do not wish to help or don't think I'm worth the effort then nobody is forcing you to.

      "I explained in another post why I haven't had a lot of time to work with this. Under normal circumstances yes it would be good to learn the tool inside out and only then ask questions."

      So your logic is that your time is limited, rather than follow instructions on how to best resolve your problem or even get help for it you choose to ignore this, and continue to run into problems. This plan isn't working out well for you so far.

      "I have done everything that I knew or figured out how to do (read the old posts). I have been sending the output as I do them in hopes it will point someone more knowledgeable to the problem."

      Not true, you've been given lots of advice that you've ignored, time and time again, and posted no output, error or warnings. Most recently here where you ignore the advice about not hiding runtime errors and ignoring problems. If you don't want peoples help in solving a problem, stop asking.

      "What is the sense of me going step 1 though 10 if someone could have looked at step 5 and saw the problem."

      Had you bothered to do so you'd be further forward. You have a problem to solve, you have to debug this, albeit as instructed by others. If you don't want to do this I suggest a change of career, as computer programming involves a lot of this.

        My logic is that I will spend what time I can fixing this. Some of the things asked of me I don't know how to do yet. In another post I thanked the monk who gave me pointers and stated that I will read up on what he gave me. Did you read that?

        >>Not true, you've been given lots of advice that you've
        >>ignored, time and time again, and posted no output, error
        >>or warnings. Most recently here where you ignore the advice
        >>about not hiding runtime errors and ignoring problems. If
        >>you don't want peoples help in solving a problem, stop
        >>asking.

        You just proved my point. You did not read my post. I did provide the output you said here

        http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=1026405

        I don't have the time to properly look into this so I will just table it for now. When I originally posted I hoped it would be something simple. It is not and this is a very low priority issue for me.
        Given that I will table this issue for now until I can give it the proper attention.

        I will note however that you did say

        >>Not true, you've been given lots of advice that you've
        >>ignored, time and time again, and posted no output, error
        >>or warnings. Most recently here where you ignore the advice
        >>about not hiding runtime errors and ignoring problems.

        So you clearly said that I did not show the runtime error when running without --gui.
        There have been some things like turning on debug that I did not do. That was simply because I haven't figured out how yet. I don't usually program on windows and I am fairly new to Perl.

        Now you say


        >>Obviously I read that post, I replied to it pointing out
        >>that you're ignoring the advice given, again and again.

        So you clearly said I didn't do something that I showed you I did and now you say you didn't do that. Problem is the posts say otherwise.

        Also, telling someone they need to go into another line of work based on a few posts is silly.
        The people who actually pay me to program have been giving me great reviews for many years so your opinion of what I should do for a living of little importance to me.

        I am done posting and reading this thread. I may open a new one once I can dedicate more time to this. To those that were trying to be helpful my sincere thanks. To those who just wanted to be critical cheer up. There are other posts you can attack.
