in thread Perl Gtk3 Tutorial

I am debating about whether to include complete programs in tutorial.

At the very least include them at the end, made from the exact code from tutorial, and make sure they run, and provide Devel::VersionDump output in a  =head1 PREREQUISITES section as an example of a configuration know to work

Its frustrating to try tutorials, and when you piece the code together, then find the author omitted something crucial or made a typo -- esp for beginners

[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
[marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
[Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
[Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
[marioroy]: Just documentation edits is all that remains. Hobo::Simple provides foreach and forseq with identifier capability -- all transparently supporting array, hash, file handle, and seq 1 .. N.
[marioroy]: Corion Regarding PID, that's great. So will leave it so compatible with MCE::Hobo. e.g. ->create returns a Hobo object. Folks can get ->pid from it. So, that's not a problem.
[choroba]: ad readdir: 5.12 needed
