( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

but it's also ancient and (from what I can tell) poorly-documented

I beg to differ.

Tk's recent update is Dec 2007, which isn't "old". The ToolKit has been around for a while (since about 91), but so has wx (92), and I prefer something that is being developed for awhile rather than a new toolkit that might still have some wrinkles and dark corners.

Tk is also as well documented (as any other Perl module), and has a whole book dedicated to it (Mastering Perl/Tk, ISBN 1565927168), which isn't something other Perl GUI ports/bindings has. It's also very Perlish in its API and very comfortable to work with in a Perl environment.

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.

    Corion had a meeting with some startup today. They have a very interesting DB proxy product, but their tech stack is really, really weird. They use the Pg wire protocol but not the Pg libraries to handle it. They support Pg SQL syntax, but don't use ...
    [Corion]: ... the Pg parser (or so they claim).
    [Corion]: Also, they rolled their own user management instead of supporting LDAP for user/role management, but that just shows that they're new in the enterprise market :)
    Corion also just now realizes they didn't leave business cards.
