X-Perl UnitFrames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.6.35
by: MysticalOS, Zeksie
A much enchanced version of Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with many additions and improvements over the original Nymbia code.

Range Finder (combined with optional health check) for all frames based on spell or item range test.

HoT Monitor will highlight units clearly that have your own active Heal over Time spells.

Debuff Highlights in standard debuff colours on all friendly frames. Priority given to show debuffs that YOU can cure first.

Raid Frames, buff icons, MT list units and some other portions or X-Perl are Created on demand. Saving a lot of time and memory at system startup. Defering the creation of many parts of X-Perl to when they are actually required. And of course, most often outside of raids they are never required and are never created.

Raid Target icon support for Target, Target's Target, MT Targets.

Raid tooltip will show combat rezzers available (druids with Rebirth ready (or very soon available) and any normal rezzers out of combat) if you bring up tooltip of a dead person.

'In-combat' indicators for Pet, Target, Target's Target, Party, Party pets, Raid, MT Targets.

3D Portraits for player, pet, target, focus, party. Optional. Of course this may degrade your framerate somewhat because you are displaying more 3D character models that without this option. But some like it pretty, and it does look cool.

Red and Green combat flashes for frames when player, pet, target, party, partypets, raid take damage/heals. Useful indication of things happening.

Added time left on party member/target buffs/debuffs when in a raid, these depend somewhat on CTRA/oRA/oRA2 sending appropriate information over the addon channel, although some of it can be determined at run time by X-Perl, when a player gets a buff for example, we know how long it should last, and therefor when it should expire.

Totally new options window including all X-Perl options and access via minimap icon.

Configurable colours for borders and backgrounds. Including class coloured names, and configurable reaction colours.

Much care has been taken with code size, memory load, memory usage per cycle and so on. LuaProfiler/OnEvent mods used extensively and regularly to ensure that X-Perl does not do more work than is absolutely necessary.

With that in mind, the event system was totally re-written, and is as kind to system performance as possible. The majority of events are disabled while zoning to alleviate any event backlog issues. And where most addons use 1 event handler per unit frame, which although standard, the alternative has improved X-Perl's performance. By using single main event handlers, we can route the events to appropriate units. So, for example, when a single UNIT_HEALTH update is fired, then just a single raid frame or party frame etc. gets the event, rather than 40 raid frame's handlers, 4 party and so on. Nymbia's Perl used to do a lot of crazy full frame udpates all over the place, eating away at CPU cycles. This was all fixed to only update what was necessary based on events.

Liberal usage of local functions to cut down compiled code size, and increase speed since functions are called directly rather than by name. Every time you have a global function, you have a global string name associated with it, so size in the global environment saved where possible.

XPerl_RaidHelper sub-addon
Assists View
Will show anyone from raid assising you with your target, and can also show healers or all plus known enemies targetting you.
Tooltips for the same also available (on player and target frames) if you prefer to not use the main window.

MT Targets
Replaces CTRA/oRA2 MT Targets window, and doubles as a replacement for the Perl RaidFrames warrior targets.
Indicator shows which target you are on.
Frames will be coloured to show if tanks have duplicate targets.

XPerl_RaidMonitor sub-addon (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Casting Monitor
Shows selected classes (defaults to healer classes) in a list (much like the MT List), but with some differences.
Shows mana bars and cast bars on left. Their targets on right. Health bar as normal, but a secondary small red bar on targets which shows the maximum single hit this unit has received since entering combat. The secondary bar will extend downwards from their current HP level down to as far as zero.
A green name on the targets indicates this is the same target that you have.
You can click on casters or their targets as expected.
For druids, right clicking on a caster will cast Innervate on them.
For shamans, right clicking on a caster will cast Mana Tide Totem. Check the * indicator to see if they're in your group.

All bars can be re-sized in X-Perl main options (Monitor section).

Totals can be toggled (from the 'T' minibutton at top of frame) which gives overview of raid mana status.

XPerl_RaidAdmin sub-addon (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Raid Admin
Save/Load raid roster setups
Only does direct save and load for the moment, but more to come (templates and such).

Item Check
Replacement for /raitem /radur /raresist /rareg. Use the old commands before, or drop items in the left item list.
Query button will perform /raitem on all ticked items (query always includes dur and resists) and you can then view and review all the results whenever, without having to re-query each item.
Includes everyone in raid, so you don't have to work out who doesn't have items, it'll list them with 0 instead of no entry.
Active Scanner to check raid member's equipment for the item selected. So you can be sure that people actually have the item worn (Onyxia Cloak for example), without having to go round single target inspecting everyone who 'forgot' to install CTRA for the 50th raid in a row.

Supported Addons
CT_RaidAssist, oRA2. Shows tooltip info and player status, replaces MT Targets List, improves raid frames, shows player status, resurrection monitor, buff timers aware.
MobInfo-2 / MobHealth3 - Shows target health from MobHealth database.
DruidBar - Shows druid mana bar from DruidBar when shapeshifted.
Clique compatible. And any other click cast addon that uses the same communication method. (see below)
Changes:
*Updated for 5.x
*Should use signifcently less cpu then it did before

Problem with 1.9.6

I have a Problem with the newest Version. I am using Clique for Healing. With 1.9.6 when trying to clickcast (shift+rightclick) in the raidframes it brings up the normal dialog as if i didnt held down shift quite often. This does not happen on party/targetframes or the mt targets and my shift key is working alright . Just switched back to 1.9.5 and the problem has gone away. Dont know if this is related to some changes in 1.9.6 or its just something with clique+xperl which came up now. I am using XPerl together with oRa2 and Clique, latest Version of both installed, no other Healing mods or clickcasting mods installed.
This is just a minor problem for me since going back to 1.9.5 seems to fix it anyway, but probably someone experienced this too.

Bye,

Chris.

P.S.: Did i miss it or isnt there an option to turn off tooltips for the raidframes ?

No, if you want to do that, I would recommend you get eCastingBar. It looks quite similar, but is sizable, movable, lots of options. Is very nice.

I really like the old redraw rate, this one seems...laggy =D
Bottom right hand corner of Target options.

And without that option on, it should really be no different than the old way. Except when switching to/from targets with same frame layout (same mana bar, mob type displayed and such) so we don't have to re-arrange the buff icons to fit the area.

Also see my notes about target switch lag in the changelog. There's a lot of work that gets done when you click on something.

Yes, I know what you mean. And for the other click mods it does work that way. But Clique uses X-Perl's click hook function instead of being called by X-Perl. I'll look into moving that though, would make sense I think.

The most CPU intensive part of X-Perl is the assists view, followed up by the MT Tank list. As this are actively scanning the raid for targets and names and such. I say intensive though, maybe not the right word. On my poopy AMD 3000+ processor they take around 1ms to process.

Try disabling this temporarily and then comparing FPS. Many people like these features though, so it's up to you to use or not.

It's worth noting, that when Burning Crusade is released, these 2 features will be significantly faster and more efficient due to some nice changes in the API.

There are other things that can be misleading. Log parsers (SW_Stats, Recap, Damage Meters and the like) all perform significant amounts of work and can impact the system to a variable degree. So it's important to compare your different unitframes in the same type of situation.

X-Perl was never designed to be 'the fastest', but rather focuses on usefulness and clarity. If it's pure speed you're after, you might prefer Perl Classic instead. That's your choice, and not something I can make your mind up about.

Re: Doesn't work with Clique?

Actually that's my fault, was using a 2 month old version of X-perl

I'll take a look at it.
