VERSION

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS

    use Acme::Spinner;
    my $s = Acme::Spinner->new();

ABSTRACT

This is a simple module that helps manage one of those silly spinning bar things that some programs use when they want you to think they are busy.

DESCRIPTION

Some programs take a long time to do some functions. Sometimes people are get confused about what is happening and start pressing buttons in an effort to illicit some response while a program is taking a long time. Strangely enough if the program gives the person using it something to watch while it is busy with other work the person is much more likely to leave the program alone so that can finish its work.

METHODS

new

The creator.

next

Bump the spinner by one and return it.
