    Need Help Creating a Perl Application Icon for Linux


    Hello, I am new to this forum and this is my first thread. I also have no experience with the Perl language, but I am working on a college project that requires me to use a programming language. My instructor suggested that I ask for help on an online forum, so I decided to register on this site.
    For my project, I need the code for a Perl application that will display a custom icon that I could make from a PNG, GIF, or BMP image. I want the icon to display itself in the Linux OS Applications list so that I can click the custom icon to launch my Perl program or script. I would be very grateful if someone could give me some sample code that would make a Linux-compatible Perl icon. Also, I would appreciate some comments within the source code to help me understand the syntax. And, if you can help, please let me know which particular Perl toolkits or version of Perl is being used. This will help me understand what SDK’s I may need to install to run the program on Linux. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    You'd need to do a bit more initial research to get the requisite assistance. We give help where people are stuck, we don't do projects for college

    Icons are just images, images are generally standard and multi platform

    You'll only need to install Perl on Linux, chances are it's already installed ... you can package it as a binary using the PAR module

    Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions." Now they have two problems.

    Thank you for your hints. I have decided to change the focus of my Linux project, so I will no longer need an answer to the above question. But, I appreciate your timely response.
