GTK, Tk or something else?

2003-09-12 09:23:15.188824-07 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Nerd Question: I've been playing with ideas for the Snippet Manager using Perl::Tk[Wiki], but I've been seeing lots of cool stuff happening in Python and Gtk and I've been wondering if maybe going with Gtk-Perl would work? Except that that hasn't been updated in years, and I'm not sure how their cross-platformability is going. Anyone have insight into a good Perl widget set, or should I just drop back to C and use Gtk? And... hmmm... here's gtk2-perl.

FWIW, I've had good experience writing cross-platform stuff with GTK2 and C. Sometimes you have to google to find the docs you need, but it works.
