NAME ^

Acme::Spinner - A trivial example of one of those activity spinners

VERSION ^

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Acme::Spinner;
    my $s = Acme::Spinner->new();
    while(<>) {
        print STDERR $s->next(), "\r";
        do_interesting_stuff( with => $_ );
    } 

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.
