Sounds like a very good plan, but wxWindows is C++. Does that complicate the matters of using inline? It seems from CPAN docs that Inline::CPP isn't going to allow me to call instance methods across the Perl/C++ boundary without non OO wrappers (I could be wrong).
FYI: freeglut 2.20 apparently doesn't have the mainloop requirement, I'm just trying to use packages that are in my apt-repository if possible...just to be sure I'm not the only one who can compile whatever I do...worst case, I can upgrade freeglut.
Again, it seems as though I would just use wxPerl or GTK perl bindings or even OpenGL.pm -- except that, as I've said, OpenGL doesn't compile. Besides, using Inline is fun and opens up the ability to use a lot of cool libs out there.
