Several of us are working with a variety of computer programs
including Perl, Gnuplot, and Basic to develop a shared application that
We would like the program to display small pop-up windows with
additional information when the computer mouse pointer is positioned over an
object on a Gnuplot window. A Perl program is already constantly running in
the background with that application and checking for key presses. It could
also constantly check the computer mouse pointer location.
Question: What Perl module would be the simplest one to use for obtaining X
and Y coordinate information for the computer mouse? There appear to be
quite a few modules to choose from.
Question: Is there a Perl module that can generate pop-up windows on its
own based on the mouse pointer location?
