I was running the "win32-gui-demos" after installing version 1.05 of
While playing around with the AnimateWindow.pl program I noticed that if you
the bottom left checkbox, and tried to hide/show the animated window, it
generated and error saying
that "bltr" was an unrecognized direction.
First I did a google search for some report of this error, and then I joined
this list, and searched the list for some report of the problem.
Since I didn't turn up anything, I started poking around in the GUI.pm code
and discovered that there was
a type there (or at least it appears to me to be a typo).
On line 441 the regex that is used to recognize directions has 'blrt'
instead of 'bltr'.
(also the comment line on 404 has the same thing)
>From look of the way the rest of the directions were listed, it seemd to me
that it OUGHT to read 'bltr' which is what the AnimateWindow.pl program
When I changed the regex to bltr, then the AnimateWindow.pl worked correctly
(and animated correctly).
I'm not sure WHO needs to know about this error/fix, but I figured this list
was a good place to start.

You found exactly the right place.
Thank you for the report. I have applied your 2 changes to my local
copy (along with a change that generates a warning but still allows
'blrt' for a deprecation cycle). The change will make it's way into
CVS soon, and into the next release.
