Re: perl gui 80 80

My personal opinion is the one you have already mentioned, PerlTk.

Re: perl gui 80 80

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I think Perl GUI's are a complete waste of time. If you're hellbent on getting a GUI done though, PerlTk is about the only way to do it, next to making calls to ``dialog'' like so: system("dialog [i]arguments[/i]"); EDIT: This is assuming you are using UNIX/Linux, and you have ``dialog'' installed (which it should be supplying you are running a UNIX variant). If you are running Windows, PerlTk's your only bet - unless someone's written a Perl module for interfacing with the WinAPI.

Re: perl gui 80 80

im just going to build up some computer programing skills. but im planing to build up a small system with perl. if you say perl gui is limited then it would be good because it will be a challenge to make one.

thanks for your time posting... :)

Re: perl gui 80 80

You can use Perl with XLIB.....

Re: perl gui 80 80

really? I'll have to look into that.

I definitely think though, that if you're interested in making a gui, just C++ or Java, or some BASIC like port to Linux (ie. Gambas). Keep the scripting and parsing language (Perl) to scripting and parsing.

Though you would have started your app by now.....:)
win32::GUI and Gtk are your choices.But they are not portable..Tk is easy to learn but has no native look(to OS)
WxPerl is your other good choice.
