    Not too sure if anyone else has tried this but I cannot get it to fire up.

    I am using Vista 32 and 64 which might explain something BUT I have the Perl from AllState, added the XML::XPath, Math::Round, Tk 804 packages. The GUI does not start from the ".exe" and when I try to run the perl source through "perl xml2bnf.pl" at a command prompt I get a message about not being able to locate "Tk/NumEntry.pm", this presumably needs another Perl package but I can't seem to find a likely candidate listed in the available packages in PPM. I guess that the "Tk::ROText" might be missing as well.

    *Update*

    OK, found that the NumEntry required is part of Tk::GBARR, got closer BUT "incvalue" is no longer an option for NumEntry, have to "hash" the "incvalue"s out to get the UI to run, but now the edits cannot be incremented by anything other than 1, the default "incvalue"

    This might be flying but I wouldn't fancy actually taking off!

     Hi

     download this Numentry from

    http://search.cpan.org/~mmarco/clickTk-4.013/lib/ctkNumEntry.pm

    and replace it on perl\site\tk

     

    and also copy ctkBitmapto perl\site and perl\site\tk http://search.cpan.org/~mmarco/clickTk-4.013/lib/ctkBitmap.pm

     

    The standalone exe is complaining that  it needs another dll, i added to the github

    http://github.com/xml2bnf/xml2bnf

     

    the dll name is libexpat.dll 

    For Tk:ROText you have to install it

     

    For this exact reason i created the standalone exe from PP but still it is not perfect

    I repacked it again

    just download the standalone exe (xml2bnf.exe) again from github this should work

    http://github.com/xml2bnf/xml2bnf/raw/master/xml2bnf.exe 

    Regards

    Venkata

     Hi Guys

    this is the issue with perl modules, the Tk::NumEntry won't allow any other increment other than 1

    where as ctk widget will allow it, 

    I have updated all the exe and setup on github, this should work now

     

    regards

    venkata
