in reply to Cross-platform GUI for UNIX based scripts

Greetings,
No disrespect intended, but generally speaking, the *NIX crowd tend to be pretty savvy
when it comes to "tech stuff". That said, if you have any experience in Perl, you might
want to look into the tk, or gtk Perl bindings/toolkits. Basically put; they allow you
to incorporate buttons, and other widgets into your Perl applications, that will run
on other platforms easily. It would also be worth looking into using CGI. There a massive
collection of freely available modules that provide the "progress-bars" you noted, as well as Jason.
Simply running a search on CPAN for
http://search.cpan.org/search?query=tk&mode=all tk. Provided a few hundred possibilies.
http://search.cpan.org/search?query=gtk&mode=all gtk, gave much the same.

    Thanks Chris I will have a look. The majority of the people who will use it are windows based with no experience of UNIX. They haven't even used putty before which makes it a bit of a headache for me.
