Maybe I'll come to the pending Win32::API problem with the callbacks

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)
Callbacks don't work at the moment, but for what I am doing this is not
such a limitation. I suspect many users can get a long way without
Maybe you could just port it without the callbacks and answer most of
the need (well my perception of it), without as much pain.
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.
I have not used any of these guys. If I can acheive the same thing than
I would be happy to swap to using these modules.
Performance is not such an issue, and if I really need I could write a
dedicated XS module for my dll I guess. I have been doing some
background reading and it does not look as if it is too difficult.
Maybe a seperate perl-tk package will be appreciated also, now that I
heard that it works after applying some known patches.I am using the perl-tk bindings to the windows TK set. I got it from
I used the binary as I recall and it worked, but the source is there.
Should I publish the 5.8.5 package or wait for 5.8.6?
I'm quite busy with postgresql and phpwiki now.
I am living at 5.8.2 at the moment, I can easily wait for 5.8.6.
