( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think the best bet is to go with using Win32::API. I have used this module to easily allow my perl program to control Winamp. Here is a short example that uses a function in the user32.dll to send a Win32 message to Winamp to obtain its playback status.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Win32::GUI; use Win32::API; my $winampHandle = Win32::GUI::FindWindow("Winamp v1.x", ""); print "Handle: $winampHandle\n"; my $sendMessage = new Win32::API("user32", "SendMessageA", ['N','N','N +','N'], 'N'); my $playStatus = $sendMessage->Call($winampHandle,1024,2,104); print $playStatus == 0 ? 'stopped' : $playStatus == 1 ? 'playing' : 'p +aused';

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
