After designing the window in The GUI Loft, this is what the Perl code looks like to bring it into your program:
my $fileWindow = "fetch.gld"; #You created this using The GU
my $objDesign = Win32::GUI::Loft::Design->newLoad($fileWindow) or
die("Could not open window file ($fileWindow)");
my $win = $objDesign->buildWindow() or
die("Could not build window ($fileWindow)");
Using Perl with OLE
I have been using perl from past couple of years. Perl is best when it comes to comparing files,folders,search, or usage on the web.
I am a Software Tester/QA Engineer I have been using Perl along with OLE to automate gui applications. And could not find any good tool which I could appreciate for object capturing(except OLEViewer), which comes with MS Visual Studio, or I used to do it via registry.
Recently came across Active Perl Browser, which did help a lot. Recently checked the perl monks and found out info which I was looking forward to have since very long. Thanks a lot guys, this really is appreciating to contribute towards the open source as well as knowledge seekers like me.
I'm new to Perl, VERY new. The GUI Loft is perfect for me BUT I can't get it to build. I used the code listed above and I get errors. How do I make a *.pl out of the *.gld file???????????????????

Make sure you read introduction parts of the User Manual (like Getting Started and General Concepts), then post to the list with a lot more detail: What did you do? What happened? What do the error messages say?
