I am using Win32::Process to start a program on Windows. The module works fine, but it lacks the ability to specify window attributes (minimized,maximized, normal window). I tried Win32::Job which allows window attributes to be specified and it starts the job minimized, however it does not start the job detached as Win32::Process does, so my Perl program sits and waits for the job to terminate, which is unacceptable in this case.
Does anyone know of a module that will permit a program to be started detached (like Win32::Process does) and allow window attributes to be specified (like Win32::Job does)?
P.S. A big plus for each of these modules is that they are core modules (ActiveState Perl 5.8.9) so no module installs are required when the program is deployed, but unfortunately they each solve a different part of the puzzle.
