The main purpose is to provide a simple desktop application that could be installed directly from CPAN.
And I finally found the time today to go through the motions and actually install it on Windows 2000 with Vanilla Perl build 3.
Since Mattia hasn't done the final production WxPerl release yet, you need to call the following the following in the CPAN.pm client shell.
> install Alien::WxWidgets
> install MBARBON/Wx-0.49_06.tar.gz
> install App::GUI::Notepad
After you do that, you too can witness the wonder that is Notepad... erm... I mean Perlpad!
