Gtk2::Notify - Perl interface to libnotify


Version 0.04


    use Gtk2::Notify -init, "app_name";

    my $notification = Gtk2::Notify->new($summary, $message, $icon, $attach_widget);


    use Gtk2::Notify qw/-init app_name/;

Importing Gtk2::Notify with the -init option requires one additional argument: the application name to use. This is equivalent to Gtk2::Notify->init($app_name).
