Win32::GUI module

John M. Dlugosz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

The supersearch turned up Win32::GUI for Perl which says a tutorial is coming soon, over a year ago. I also found How do I use Win32::GUI properly? which says that at one time the ppd was flaky but download from this site. That site says that the ppm should be in sync with his source, though. That article also says something about examples, which I don't see with the ppm.

So, does anyone have any clue how to use this? When I tried the program from the Answer section here, I get a null pointer violation.

    The package does come with a tutorial. Installing the PPM should place these files in ActiveState's HTML index page (though, I think, not under "Win32::GUI" but something like "GuiTut"); otherwise, grab a tarball, and look in the subdir docs/tut.

    The version on ActiveState's site is 558, as is the source tar on dada's site. But data's PPM is 502, and when I downgraded to that, the example doesn't crash.
