Thanks BrowserUk!

I downloaded the trial of Acquire, and it works for me.

<whines>but i wanted to make a free, perl-based alternative to the webcam software out there now. </whines>
I guess I better keep looking.

    John. Glad it helped a little at least.

    Have you looked around Dosadi's site? They also have a package (under Products) called CTwain, which is a library with source for use in building TWAIN apps. Their licencing is very generous in that it "may be freely used for non-commercial purposes". It is designed for exactly your purpose I think.

    They also have a support dept. which, going by my one intereaction with them, seems very knowledgable, efficient and flexible. A rarity these days.

    I'd suggest you contact them, tell them what you are trying to do, and maybe they will be able to give you some pointers. Good luck

[Corion]: Oooh - finally, I can say no lazy; :)
[Corion]: But it's another The::Net incarnation, too sad ;)
[Corion]: WTF? There is a dev release of Danga::Socket?! I thought that module died a long time ago?! According to its changes, the last release was in 2008 ;)
[Corion]: (and Brad Fitzpatrick long since moved on to Go ;) )
[Corion]: But who am I to worry about necrocpan - I'm revisiting my online banking module, and also I'll somewhat revive WWW::Mechanize:: Firefox, at least if the test suite passes under the Waterfox browser ...
[Corion]: Maybe I should look through my CPAN releases and revisit them in order of last release and think about what to do with the modules :)
[marto]: this cpan day there should be a call to remove old crud :P
[marto]: as well as encourage active development

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
