I think you can add this to simulate pressing the Enter / Escape keys:
$mw->bind('<KeyRelease-Return>' => \&Hello); $mw->bind('<KeyRelease-Escape>' => sub{ exit });
And to position in the screen:
$mw->geometry('100x200+1500+1500'); # which represents the size + position

    I guess it depends on your screen. To centre the main window on my laptop

    $mw->geometry('200x200+550+250');

    works for me.

      If your window has 400x300 dimensions then
      $mw->geometry('400x300+'.int(($mw->screenwidth-400)/2).'+'.int(($mw->s +creenheight-300)/2));
      will help you.

      But I see in some systems geometry works strange.
      1. If I use KDE4.5.2 without 3d then all works fine.
      2. If I use Compiz on Kubuntu 10.10 then some time windows position is random. In old versions of Kubuntu all was fine. May be this is temporary.
      3. Some problems was on Windows with StrawberyPerl.

[stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
[shmem]: sounds good.
[shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
[stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
[shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
[stevieb]: I literally laughed. That's good :) Perhaps I just need to go climb another mountain and forget about it
