Description: This is a Perl script that makes use of the Win32:GUI module. Hopefully this will be a good example of the many features that can be used in GUI. This is the updated version of my finddata.pl program with comments added. I still haven't got the Stop button to work or been able to read the data based on an item of data that is clicked. You will need a data file named "datafile.txt" in the same directory and must run the program with a -t parameter like:

perl finddata.pl -t

The datafile needs to be in the format:

id,firstname,lastname,building,room,adapteraddress,ipaddress

I would appreciate any insight.
