perl_Reaction version 0.05 ========================== This is an experimental (but quite functional) wrapper for the OS4.0 Reaction GUI system. It enables you to write perl script with a GUI. It is a very "thin" wrapper The Objects reated are simply integer equivalents of the C pointers to the BOOPSI objects and other structures. With the excepetion of the arexx.class they are not properly blessed perl objects. Therefore you must clean up after yourself as you would in C program. Calling DisposeObject() as needed, Freeing DrawInfo structures etc. The following modules will be installed. Reaction Provides a selection of intuition and exec functions to support GUI building. As well as some additional "helper" function for obtaining and accessing various sytem functions navigating lists etc. Reaction::Classes::Window The RA_OpenWindow RA_Handleinput etc. functions provide the same functionality as their C macro equivalents. Reaction::Classes::Arexx Now implemented using a "traditional" perl object do perldoc Reaction::Classes::ARexx for more info Reaction::Classes::Requester Reaction::Classes::PopupMenu Reaction::Gadgets::Button Reaction::Gadgets::CheckBox Reaction::Gadgets::Chooser Reaction::Gadgets::ClickTab Reaction::Gadgets::ColorWheel Reaction::Gadgets::DateBrowser Reaction::Gadgets::FuelGauge Reaction::Gadgets::GetFile Reaction::Gadgets::GetFont Reaction::Gadgets::GetScreenMode Reaction::Gadgets::Integer Reaction::Gadgets::Layout Reaction::Gadgets::ListBrowser Reaction::Gadgets::Palette Reaction::Gadgets::RadioButton Reaction::Gadgets::Scroller Reaction::Gadgets::Slider Reaction::Gadgets::Space Reaction::Gadgets::String Reaction::Gadgets::TextEditor Reaction::Gadgets::Virtual Reaction::Images::Bevel Reaction::Images::BitMap Reaction::Images::Drawlist Reaction::Images::Filler Reaction::Images::Glyph Reaction::Images::Label Reaction::Images::Penmap Pod Documentation is thin at the moment, typically only functions that vary in calling from their underlying C equivalent are documented. INSTALLATION: BINARY Copy the contents of the SDK/ directory into your SDK assign. Or if you have reconfigured perl the contents of SDK/Local/clib2/lib/perl5 to your perl5 directory. NOTE: If you have the SDK it is better to install from source (see below). INSTALLATION: SOURCE To install this module type the following: First generate the .ph files for the SDK includes: (assuming perl is allready installed) cd SDK:Include/include_h sh h2ph -r . exit (this will recursively create the perl header files (.ph) making C Macros such as Tag names available to the perl script.) Now cd to the directory where you unpacked this archive (the same as this readme and Makefile.PL are found) sh perl Makefile.PL LINKTYPE=dynamic make make install optionaly before make install perform a simple test by typing perl -I blib/lib -I blib/arch test_win.pl a simple Reaction GUI will open which should respond to your input witchout crashing. DEPENDENCIES Reaction libraries and classes. SDK plus tools like make an advantage, even for non developers (users) as perl expects to have access to make, sh, gcc, etc. HISTORY 0.05 Fixed a bug with the Reaction::Classes::ARexx module, where the module would crash if the port were passedan uknown command. Fixed duplicate definition of version. 0.04 Add workarround for the fact that .ph are only "required" once. So using them in a module prevents them being used at script level. Omitted .ph files from binary directory. 0.03 Add support for the arexx class using a blessed perl object. Construction / Disposal of the underlying Reaction class is handled internal. Add __examples/arexx.pl and __examples/test.rexx as a simple demo of the above. 0.02 Add more typemaps to allow some of the "helper" functions to be called with ordinary perl arguments. Fixed bug in ptrtostr() 0.01 Initial Release COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Put the correct copyright and licence information here.
