Description (Last modified by texasfett)

I found a new way to create a tray icon for Windows and hide the console without using Active State's PDK or any modules that aren't included in the standard packages. I found the code in another Perl program and I don't want to taint our code with code we didn't write so I am not posting a code example, but it looks relatively simple for someone who is good with Perl. Take a look into these:

Win32::GUI::Window
Win32::GUI::Icon
Win32::GUI::Menu
Win32::GUI::Dialog
Win32::GUI::Show
AddNotifyIcon

Apparently Naoki already did exactly this for POPFile 1.1.0 in 2008. Awesome!
