Hi Rein,

Have you ever tried running the client under win32 perl&gtk binaries?
I mean these: http://www.lostmind.de/gtk2-perl/

I felt like tormenting myself a bit today and rebooted into windows.
I installed those binaries, pskmail and fldigi and started looking into
getting something up. Anyway, to make a long story short I got
psk_arq.pl to actually try to run but I had to try to get rid of
DB_File. I just could not find a repository where I could get it (it
doesn't use cpan). I got other glade/gtk stuff up and running so if I
could just get DB_file.pm somewere then I could come a bit further...

But, using windows really was painful. What a horrible os it really is.
It feels like having a straight jacket or something, not pleasant.

Anyway, my motivation for doing this was that if the guys at intermar
could see that the original client can be made to run under windows then
perhaps they can stop working on their stupid fork and concentrate what
they have on the existing client...

So, have you tried this?
