Maybe I'll come to the pending Win32::API problem with the callbacks
on gcc also. A simple hack30-like solution should always be possible.
Or a fallback to C::Dynalib.
Win32::OLE didn't compile OOTB, but this is easy. Just forgot where I
put the patch.
And your /usr/include/iodbcunix.h was wrong. Had to patch it to
compile Win32::ODBC. Will send it later.
It would be be fantastic if you can. I am making a lot of use of this
module at the moment to call third party dlls.
Which of these three?
Win32::API callbacks will need some time.
Use the two other, better perl FFI's instead (FFI, C::Dynalib)
For Win32::OLE there was a patch somewhere which I didn't apply nor
Win32::ODBC and the rest of the libwin32 suite works ok.
Maybe a seperate perl-tk package will be appreciated also, now that I
heard that it works after applying some known patches.
Should I publish the 5.8.5 package or wait for 5.8.6?
I'm quite busy with postgresql and phpwiki now.
