in thread POD-Browser 0.01 released.

Sorry if I expressed myself in a mistakable way :). I didn't mean to criticise your tool -- I really like it and find it very useful. I just criticised your using an installer. You can distribute a Perl app along with compiled modules just fine using PAR or the older App::Packer (see e.g. my Shipping standalone perl apps on Win32, but I'm not sure whether App::Packer is still a good choice). Just put the whole directory in a ZIP file and ship that. I didn't take a look at your package, but I guess you did just that -- only instead of putting it into a ZIP file, you used an installer. This is the very small nit I am picking :). This is probably just a personal preference of mine -- I work on a number of different PCs and usually install only what is necessary, keeping small tools like yours on a central server so I can just run them from there.

Also, I second PodMaster's suggestion to use a SplashScreen on Startup.

    No problem man, I understand what you said! ;-p

    I started to make the package with PAR, but doesn't work with wxPerl, even with some hack! ;-/ Than I just used HWXperl that I have here.

    But I'm working with the author of PAR to make some updates to it, and get some resources from my module LibZip, that I won't release, since I want to group it with PAR. (they have the same purpose).

    About the splash. I was so lame to make an image for now... (Note tha I'm the author of Wx::Perl::SplashFast, that you need to use on Win32 or the splash only come with the main frame). I will appreciate any images from the monks for POD-Browser. ;-P
