Re: [PATCH] make Gtk2::Gdk->get_default_root_window() usable

Thierry Vignaud said:
but since you added a class parameter whereas we have no object
Gtk2::Gdk, we have :
- either to add a stupid dummy arg such as in

  that wa can call:

i guess i don't understand what you're saying.  let me back up:

i just wrote a test program:

  #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  use strict;
  use Gtk2 -init;
  use Data::Dumper;

  my $root = Gtk2::Gdk->get_default_root_window;
  print Dumper($root);

and it showed me

  $VAR1 = bless( {}, 'Gtk2::Gdk::Window' );

then i changed the line to

  my $root = Gtk2::Gdk->get_default_root_window ('');

and it died with

  Usage: Gtk2::Gdk::get_default_root_window(class) at line 7.

the class parameter in the usage statement is the one on the left side of the
arrow when called as a method.  whatever's on the left side of the arrow gets
passed as the first parameter, and in this instance, the actual XS function
ignores its only parameter, which is required only to allow the method syntax.
 if i remove the argument from the XS declaration, the method syntax ceases to

do you not see this behavior?  are you sure that the XS declaration in
GdkWindow.xs is the only one you have?  (you earlier sent a patch which
included that function in Gdk.xs)
