Pronto is an excellent mail client. There is a another version being written in C, but the main Pronto is written in GTK Perl. I've used the tutorial immensely, but when it comes to undocumented commands - it gets tough, especially CTREE and how to make it appear like a folder list, with dropdown squares [+] to expand a dir.

I really like Glade, but found it hard to jump right into, trying to figure out how to access the names of controls and other items. I found writing my own code, was a lot easier because I'm not that experienced at perl object code. (been advancing and things are starting to click in Perl.. making me love programming again, and find a new language I can use on Linux - I programmed VB and other Basics for over 12 years, so I got spoiled, and ticked how I wasted my time, oh well... I'm glad I found Perl :)

[1nickt]: marioroy Yes, I am using it with MCE, as is Discipulus I believe. I was trying to work out how to make a cpanfile that would be smart enough to know which deps to require.
[1nickt]: See this code. (I expected to simply eval loading threads as a check, but weirdness happened with Perlbrew so it's a grep of -V ...)
[choroba]: Config might be better than grepping -V
[Corion]: Also see Config::V, which is less of that hackery, or that hackery hidden in a module ;)
[1nickt]: The problem was with Perlbrew
[Corion]: Whoops - Config::Perl::V
[1nickt]: I found that when using Perlbrew as recommended, with cpanminus in the system perl lib, such tests were failing to detect the data about the perl that was the install destination.
