Re: Win32 again

I haven't followed this closely so I could be wrong about that).

If you are looking for a windowing toolkit for perl under Win32,
check out Tk.  It has been ported to use native Win32 calls and the
calling syntax is the same,  as far as I know,  across multiple

Has anyone completed a port to win32 using native Win32 for the
