That example was great! I'll hack in a version into my app while I play with
the XS stuff.

Do you know if Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Standard 2003 would work?
There are a few other areas in the XS and core win::gui that I might start
playing with over the next few months. Is there a process in place to get
new/changed code into the core releases?
It's fast, it's easy and it's free. Get MSN Messenger today!

I don't know.
If you have it, only way it's try ;-)

I think you can send patch to Aldo or to
For people want build Win32::GUI from source code and don't have Visual C++.
With ExtUtils::FakeConfig, it's possible to use MinGW for building Win32-GUI
module for ActivePerl.
MinGW is a free GCC for windows.
ExtUtils::FakeConfig is a perl module writen by Mattia Barbon for substitute
some Config entry for use MinGW instead Visual C++.
I have write a small HOW-TO and provide patched Win32-GUI (558 & 665) source
