Re: Extracting data from SimpleList

Hi All,

Using the wonderful SimpleList to bypass dealing with the TreeView stuff 
is pretty handy. However, how does one get the data back out of the 
list? I've attached a small example where I am printing out the indices 
very easily, but I see no docs on accessing the data, except for 
get_row_data_from_path. How do I get the path? From my admittedly 
ignorant point of view, it would be super if there was a 
get_row_data_from_index. Anyone else think that would be useful?
$button -> signal_connect(clicked => \&shout_it, $window);
sub shout_it {
      @indices = $slist -> get_selected_indices;
      foreach $i (@indices) {
              print $i . "\n"; # I'd rather print the actual data here.

Watch out for my answers, I'm just visiting this list
while I work out some issues.  I think this will work,
it seems to be working for me:

  my $selection = $slist->get_selection;
  my ($liststore,$iter) = $selection->get_selected;
  my @a = $liststore->get($iter,0..4); # Get first 5 data fields
