A couple of people have mentioned on the macosx list about the lack of applications/examples using camelbones. Other than the excellent examples by Sherm that come with the framework, JournalX (toot, toot!) seems to be the only other application using the framework with the source available. Considering the amount of people that wanted a macosx perl GUI tool I am amazed by this situation. Is it just that there aren't many perl programmers using OS X? Or is it just that perl programmers aren't fans of writing GUI apps?
On the JournalX front, I haven't done much work on it lately, not that there are any users of it other than me
I have also been daydreaming about creating a CPANPLUS front-end with camelbones. I have built a simple interface with IB, but I have hit a few snags with the design. I need a way to use the apple security procedures to allow for installation into the system perl directories. After ready the Authorization Services API, using AuthorizationExecuteWithPrivileges() seems to be the way to go, but I am not really sure how I should deal with displaying progress, and how to deal with prompts from the installer/testing. I am sure I will eventually figure out the solution, and then hit another stumbling block
