  • As you said

    periodically pop up alerts on my machine

    do you even need a GUI toolkit? It seems to me like a plain MessageBox [microsoft.com] API call is all you need.

    That is, unless you want the script to continue running while the message is shown. In that case, you could set up a simple window with The GUI Loft [darserman.com]. Oldie, but probably good enough.

    And I've never seen a service with a GUI, I'm not sure if it will behave nicely.

    • Actually I think I'll probably input a couple of things into the dialog box, so it's more than just a message box.

      But I'm unclear on what you're suggesting ... write XS code? Or is there some standard way to call MessageBox from Perl? I'm pretty ignorant. :)
