in reply to Can plXPCOM be revived?

In the last few months I've been resurrecting the code, both sides are now working, the "Perl calls XPCOM" side ( is almost finished, the other side (to write a component in perl) requires some more work. A lot of testing needed, any one interested? Drop me a note.

    Any progress since 2010? Anything published? On, the latest "news" is from 2005, and I can't find any XPCOM module on CPAN.

    A Perl XPCOM interface would be really helpful to control VirtualBox on non-Windows platforms. The "raw web service" has some bad smell, and adding SOAP does not really help. ;-)


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
