I was making some experiences to start a SplashScreen more fast. Marcus
and Mattia was talking about a splash sample more realistic and I saw a new
splash sample about this in the CVS. But we still have a problem! We have to
wait the loading of all Wx module and only after this we can show a
In CPUs more slow the load of wxPerl can take 2-3s, is much time to can
start to see a SplashScreen. I made some changes in the structure of the
loading process of wxPerl, and now we can show the SplashScreen before the
end of the loading process.
The example are only to introduce the idea of this structure. Don't use it
in your standart wxPerl programs.
Load the zip and see the readme.txt for instructions:

Hey, that's a great idea. I just ran it. Looks good.
Could you add some "padding" (controls or loops), so we can see how it
acts with a larger app?
With larger apps the current splash method requires a few seconds to
show on a slow machine, so your method would be great...if it doesn't
cause side-effects we haven't noticed yet. But, Mattia will probably
be able to comment on that.
