in reply to Glade/Gtk review/tutorial

Well,
when I started with perl and Gtk on a thursday I only had the link to the well known tutorial which has been mentioned and linked above.
When I finished the application (about 1000 lines of code) on tuesday I had found The Cookbook, was subscribed to The Mailinglist and studied the sources of CSC Mail which has a follow-up project called Pronto (according to freshmeat) which I don't know anything about.

That's all I needed to get me running.

Hope this helps...

Regards... Stefan

    Sorry to sound rude, but when I saw this node, in the Perl Monks Discussion area instead of the Tutorials section, I was bothered somewhat. Shouldn't this be moved more to the Tutorials section since it really isn't a discussion, but rather a tutorial? Just my opinion.

      It's OK, all editors have the power to relocate root nodes. I put it here so that people could correct me and suggest changes, like stefan_k did. Then if it's deemed a worthwhile tutorial it will be bounced over to Tutorials.

      I have seen one or two others post their tutorials here and assumed it was the standard procedure.

        Yep, having this node moved over to Tutorials is already being discussed at Nodes to consider. It takes a higher monk than I to actually make the move though....

    Pronto is an excellent mail client. There is a another version being written in C, but the main Pronto is written in GTK Perl. I've used the tutorial immensely, but when it comes to undocumented commands - it gets tough, especially CTREE and how to make it appear like a folder list, with dropdown squares [+] to expand a dir.

    I really like Glade, but found it hard to jump right into, trying to figure out how to access the names of controls and other items. I found writing my own code, was a lot easier because I'm not that experienced at perl object code. (been advancing and things are starting to click in Perl.. making me love programming again, and find a new language I can use on Linux - I programmed VB and other Basics for over 12 years, so I got spoiled, and ticked how I wasted my time, oh well... I'm glad I found Perl :)
