( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm working on a module called Text::Anim, to do something akin to sprite animation with ASCII art. It can be used to do a standalone full screen animation, or it can be passed a Curses window, so that you can insert an animation into a window inside your Curses application. Any advice would be appreciated, particularly from anyone who has done sprite animation before. Here are a few specific things I'm interested in:

1) What features would you expect or like that are missing?
2) Is there anything that goes against conventions for sprite animation in a way that would confuse someone with sprite animation experience
3) A better way to implement the get_path routine without passing so many arguments (maybe a hash like the routines in
4) Any problems that you run into trying to get it to work

Here is the module and a demo script. There is a small example script at the end of the module. Curses is required for the module, Geo::Weather is required for the demo script.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
