  • I've actually been thinking about including support for wxPerl in The GUI Loft. But there are a lot of things that needs to be done before that's a reality.

    I think I need to really _know_ wxPerl before doing something like that, and that means writing an application or two for real.

    Then it's the problem with dynamic vs static layout strategy. It may end up not being a problem, but it's may also be a deal breaker depending on the quality required on all platforms. I think I can go with "excellent" on Windo
  • If they want to change the functionality of the Perl language, the compatible way is to use a source filter. Surely a simple source filter can be created that will make the dot operator work the way he wants within a limited lexical scope.

    I would not want to be responsible for maintaining a forked perl 5.8.0. Jarkko got out most of the bugs, to be sure, but some day I'm sure there's going to be a 5.8.1, and then what are you going to do? :)
