I am writing a Perl class browser, and I really think it is going to be useful because I keep using it to continue working on it.
I started cleaning up some things, and I discovered that CPAN.pm can do a lot of work for me. Now I can display almost all of the module meta-data as part of the browser.
I am still thinking about adding an ISA feature, but I would like to get around loading the module to then inspect it. I don't want a really huge process if I inspect a lot of modules. That may already be a problem if I am using CPAN.pm, but I have not checked.
A big problem coming up includes jumping from one module's docs to another's. If the docs link to another module, I want to do a hypertext sort of thing. Maybe someone already has a Tk Text thingy that already figures out positions and underlining and colors and whatnot. I would have to play with the POD stuff too so I would know where to make the links in the displayed text.
And, things are getting to the point where I need to pack things neatly in the main window. I really wish I had my Tcl/Tk book here, because that's what I always used to figure that stuff out. Anyone have a visual Tk widget placement tool?
