If anyone is interested, I have created a Perl module for DirectX. It is still in the early stages of development, but I have released it on SourceForge here, if anyone would be interested in having a play with it and providing some feedback. So far, I have created an interface to Direct3D, DirectSound, and DirectInput. I have also managed to integrate it with Win32::GUI, which makes creating windows for a DirectX application quite simple.

I haven't quite set up the project page yet, so if you wish to provide some feedback or have any questions, either send me an email, or reply to my post about my module on PerlMonks here.

You'll need to build the module from source and requires the DirectX SDK.

The documentation is lacking at this point, so it's probably best to just read the documentation that comes with the SDK, since the Perl interface is still quite similar to the underlying API.

I hope that you find it useful.
