Description:

Simple script to change the MS Windows wallpaper from the command-line. Really just a wrapper around the SetSystemParametersInfo() API call, via Win32::API.

I'm using it as part of another small app. I'm writing (for my GF) to pick random papers. :)

#!/usr/bin/perl

use Win32::API;

use constant SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER  => 20;
use constant SPIF_UPDATEANDSENDINI => 3;
use constant NULL                  => 0;

my $syspinf = Win32::API->new('user32','SystemParametersInfo', [I,I,P,
+I], I)
  or die "Could not import function.\n";

$syspinf->Call(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, $ARGV[0], SPIF_UPDATEANDSENDIN
+I);

[erix]: they've stuck nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad - they can just reach Berlin :)
[LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but heís not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
[Your Mother]: Missiles would be an idiotís play. Putin is many things but he is not an idiot.
[erix]: I like the idea of the trumps troup of imbeciles growing slightly nervous now their incompetence will be tested
[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
