in reply to Books, Magic Wands and Perl

Am I the only person having problems with this code? So far, I have found that the code is dependant upon a visual basic binding to zoom. This is (my guess) a workaround due to compilation issues for zoom on windows. My knowledge of visual basic is poor. Must I install something from the Visual Basic Binding Zoom page for this code to work on my Windows2000 box?

Screen scraping with lwp::simple and the online catalog is starting to sound much easier. This is a great idea - I just wish it were it bit more user friendly.

    No, you are not the only one bothered by a dependancy on a VB (shudder) ActiveX dll. In More Books and Magic I describe the solution to a more reasonable approach. Look for version 0.02 of some time this weekend.
