[ #5733 ]
I finally saw the light and installed this window manager on my desktops. (Why do people have to get religious about their window managers anyway? There isn't even a window manager written in Perl.)

On the perl front : the Perl Repository Browser (which enables to browse the recent patches via the web -- written by Simon) is broken. Apparently the cache files have been corrupted (probably due to concurrent updates.) I tried to install and run it on my home PC, but it's damn slow over a modem (it has to download a bunch of patches to reconstruct the cache files locally) and I didn't had much time this weekend. I'll have to investigate more... and to get a faster internet access...

  • There isn't even a window manager written in Perl

    See Perlbox []

    • From the perlbox site:
      perlBox is a pluggable desktop manager for Unix-type operating systems. It is written in perl/TK and integrates well with the blackbox window manager, thus the name.
      So it's not really a window manager (you know, the thingy that draws the border of your windows, with many native X11 calls in it----)
    • As noted in a previous post, perlbox is not a window manager at all. It is a desktop environment. See my paper at for a more detailed explanation. There is a window manager, of sorts, written in perl: perlwm. See: I am hoping to integrate a new, pure perl window manager with perlbox in the near future. Shane Mason
