Complete 'Gtk2-Perl for Windows' build available

Brian Manning
Hi,

I posted here about a week ago looking for help with building
Gtk2-Perl on Windows using MinGW and dmake.  I've figured it out
enough to get a basic build working.  I've made it available here:

http://camelbox.googlecode.com/files/camelbox-2007.317.1-gutted-beta.7z

What's included in the archive:
Perl 5.8.8
C libraries: gtk+-2.12.1, glib-2.14.2, atk-1.20.0, pango-1.18.3, cairo-1.4.10
Perl modules: Gtk2-1.162, Glib-1.162, Cairo-1.043

The archive is in 7-zip format (http://www.7zip.org).  There's a
readme file in the archive, it basically tells you to unpack the
archive to C:\ and add C:\perl\5.8.8\bin to your PATH environment
variable.  I've packed the examples/gtk-demos from the Gtk2 Perl
distribution, they're in C:\perl\examples. I've also added an example
of my own, gyroscope.pl (a color-picker that returns the HTML/CSS
color string).

Consider the file that's on the Google Code page now as a
"proof-of-concept"; I removed (for now) a lot of extra
binaries/libraries that I didn't think would be used frequently, and I
am going to massively rearrange the archive layout shortly.

I'll send another e-mail a little later with the basics of the changes
that I had to do in order to get the thing to build on Windows.

Please let me know if you have any questions...

Thanks,

Brian

Would I be right in guessing that gnome-canvas is one of the libraries
that's not included yet?

Cheers

Sorry, Gtk2, Glib and Cairo only on the Perl side (for now).  Yes, I
do want to get as much of the Gtk2-Perl stuff working under Windows as
possible, but I need to validate and capture what I've done first so
far before I brain-fart and forget.

Thanks,

Brian

Ahh, but now it is included.  The build I have now runs the
Gnome2-Canvas demo successfully.

I'm just about to post another e-mail with the particulars.

Thanks,

Brian
