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

Error on focus

I use version 3.02 with a french client on a french server. Till now I never had any problem with this great add-on, but now when I try to define focus I've got the error (not exact text) "x-perl tried to do something that only the original Blizzard interface can do". Even with all add-ons deactivated but x-perl, I've got this. Any idea?

Finally had the opportunity to test with LibQuickHealth-2.0 disabled, leaving LibQuickHealth-1.0 active (see 4 posts below for the original problem).

A raid last night. Did not notice an issue with boss health. But every time I died (a couple times), I always came back to life with "1/15000" health in the player frame and a health bar indicating that I was effectively out of health ("15000" being representative of my full health). HOTs (heal over time) did not change the value. Only two consecutive "full" heals each time brought the player health bar back to life.

GL fixing the issue.

Haven't had any issue with my or other's health using LibHealComm-3.0

But that remembered me one bug involving library usage.
When you're cancelling cast, the projected healing indicator remains on the nameplate, confusing both me and my target.
It is X-Perl or library issue?

That's an issue with LQH I'm afraid. I've reported this a couple of times, and quite often get the problem myself. Some debugging shows that LQH is reporting the health wrongly.

This is unavoidable atm. It's a limitation of the default WoW menu system, and until they provide something more adaptable to addons, it just won't work. The same goes for any other unitframe mod.

Yes, if you use something like Clique to redefine the default mouse button click behaviour. I use it myself for healing and it's great

I'm using keybinding (Alt+F in my case) to set a focus target.
Work like a charm

How do I disable the aggro warning? It's annoying.

Is there a way to show my party using the raid frames instead of the party frames when I'm in a 5 man group and not in a raid?

thanks for any advice

Been using X-perl for quite some time, love it, great work on keeping it a great Unit Frame mod <3

Only request I have is to have pet debuffs filtered along with my own if possible, reason being is primarily for a fight like malygos, but its also nice occasionally for other things. I use big debuffs for my own debuffs, perhaps a 25% increase for pet ones and filtered to be put after my own or anything along those lines would be bad ass.

My Buffs

For the my buffs problem could you not just make it match spelllists by class? That way you dont have to identify spells I cast, just what I can cast....

Tank Frame?

Referring to the Tank frame, if it gets closed how do I get it to open back up?

It is WoW problem. There's no easy way to distinguish yours buffs from other since 3.0.
I understand the "show only castable buffs" option is not functioning properly and am also curious if Rathe's suggestion, "For the my buffs problem could you not just make it match spelllists by class? That way you dont have to identify spells I cast, just what I can cast...." will work.

In the meantime, I would like to leave "show party buffs" ON but one person's buff icons overlap onto the next party member's unit frame once the first row of buff icons is filled. This prevents me from seeing party members' names and sometimes their health. I set the "number of rows to show" option to 5 and 6 rows to see if this would stop this from happening but it did not. Therefore my only option is to turn off party buffs completely, which I do not want to do since I am a priest. Any help for this problem? Perhaps there is a way to spread out the party unit frames more for now? And thank you for a wonderful addon and all your hard work!

You *can* increase gap between party units. Check the top-left corner of configuration window
To me, I just set number of rows to 1. Kinda hard choice, but it works for me. (I'm priest and my alt is palad, just to prevent reiteration "but i'm priest")
