Wx-y goodness

Nah, this has nothing at all to do with compilers or virtual machines or anything, but my $CONSULT_JOB needs a good cross-platform HTML widget with javascript capabilities to use in a WxPerl based app. There isn't one, of course, so I went ahead and wrapped the WxMozilla widget for use in perl with the Wx toolkit. The result, Wx::Mozilla 0.03, is on CPAN if you need that sort of thing.

I think it works -- I can instantiate the widget, sling things at it, get data back, and generally fiddle with it, but I'm far from a Wx hacker, so I'm not actually 100% sure it's working. (I have no idea how to set the size of a widget contained in another widget, for example. Oh, the shame.... :) If it's the sort of thing you might need, or if you do Wx perl hacking for fun (or money) and want to grab it and give it a go, I'd certainly appreciate it.

And no, I've not got it working on Windows, just on my debian Linux system. Haven't yet figured out how to get the windows Wx build thingie to find the DLLs and header files to make it work. I do windows even less than I do Wx... (So if you hack that up, I'd love ya for it too)
