Rhose has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have spent the better part of a day reading all of the documentation I can find on manipulating the MS Agent with perl. (A special thanks to Jouke and his Win32::MSAgent module which I was able to use to answer a lot of other questions.) My problem is this... I can add a user defined menu option to the agent, but I cannot figure out how to attach a perl sub to the agent's Command event. Any suggestions?

Here is a some code which will activate the "Merlin" agent, add an exit menu option, and then wait. Getting the program to terminate when the exit menu option is selected is my goal.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Variant; Win32::OLE->Initialize(Win32::OLE::COINIT_MULTITHREADED); my $Agent = Win32::OLE->new('Agent.Control.2'); $Agent->{Connected} = Variant(VT_BOOL, 1); $Agent->Characters->Load('Merlin','Merlin.acs'); my $Char = $Agent->Characters('Merlin'); $Char->Commands->Add('Exit','E&xit'); $Char->Show; while(1) { $Char->Speak('Sleeping...'); sleep(60); }
