There are two drawbacks to Win32::API that I've noticed so far. One could be easily remedied, while the other is probably not something I should hold my breath for...
hold your breath instead :-)
soon (I hope) you'll be able to say:
...and callbacks will be there. I'm still cleaning things up, but I bet you'll be surprised :-)
oh, and BTW:
One example I'm thinking of is placing icons in the system tray. To be able to respond to mouse clicks, the function call that places the icon there must specify a callback that gets executed on a mouse click. AFAIK, there is no way to do this yet in Perl, and it may be impossible at the present.
well, there's Win32::GUI for this.
