Do not use. This module is deprecated.
This is a utility module for Gtk-Perl, the Perl bindings to Gtk+ 1.x. Gtk-Perl has been unmaintained for a long time. Gtk+ 1.x, the library it binds, has been superseded by the API-incompatible Gtk+ 2.x series, and has subsequently been deprecated as well.
If you are writing a new application, use Gtk2-Perl instead. The Gtk+ 2.x toolkit it binds has a cleaner, more modern design than Gtk+ 1.x, and the bindings are much more comprehensive than Gtk-Perl ever was. Gtk2-Perl comes packaged with a module providing very similar functionality as this one, called Gtk2::SimpleList.
The code in this version of the module is identical to Gtk::HandyCList 0.02, so that legacy applications will continue to work. Only the documentation has been replaced with a deprecation warning in order to discourage new development based on this module.
