in reply to Revenge of the Perl Quilt

Strange...I d/l'd from the d/l link. When I run this, it just keeps asking me for column and row numbers....over and over.
Of course I did run "perl -pi.bak -e 's/\015//g' quilt.pl" on it to clean out the ^M's

What does this little button do . .<Click>; "USER HAS SIGNED OFF FOR THE DAY"

    This is because the code dosen't run out-of-the-box. You need to supply some "colors" (as numbers and filenames) for the quilt in the hash %numbers_to_fabrics.

    An interesting project would be to add the capability to read a directory full of images and mush them into a quilt. Also interesting would maybe be to add more user/error feedback - both projects can be easily completed by using Perlmonks Super Search (search for "Reading Directory" and/or File::Find) and by looking at the program code and carefully sprinkling print statements here and there.

    Corion is right - it doesn't run out of the box, since it needs image files of the fabrics. I have a tarball with the script and some sample swatches, so if anyone wants to play with it, /msg me and I'll pass that along.

    Good suggestions for features, Corion - I see this project growing. It's been a great way for me to learn Perl. I'd eventually like to have a web interface for it, where you could click checkboxes on which fabrics you want in the quilt, and enter a weighting factor for each fabric.
