in thread Explaining a Perl project to a VB-bound audience

GTK does have a GUI interface builder called Glade, you may have not been in the office when I was playing with it. :)

I only tinkered with it breifly, but it made UI creation very easy. It is geared toward building C/C++ applications, but it does have a Perl binding...how well it really works, I don't know.

/\/\averick
perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e6470272f2c5f2c5166756279636b672');"

    ...how well it really works, I don't know.

    All of the hardcore gnome hackers that I've spoken with seem to come to the same concensus: use the .glade file, but not the code.

    Personally, I don't mind the C code glade generates, but most seem to disagree. The Perl code that can be generated via glade is done with glade2perl, which is a Perl program that makes heavy use of Glade::PerlGenerate. IMO, the code that it generates is absolutely hideous! I generally hand-write my own, but have been meaning to try libglade (see below).. and'll be glad to let you know how it is if/when i do.

    As far as peoples' distaste towards glade generated code... it seems preferable to just use libglade to dynamically generate the UI from the .glade xml file.
    I believe (but am not sure) the Perl binding for this lib is Glade::PerlRun, though I've never used it.
