As you can see, ask a general Perl question and you'll get a ton of options - don't expect this to change! But to narrow it down for you I'll point you to some resources:

Learning Perl is a great introductory text for the uninitiated.

GUI Options:
  • Tk (most used I think, works on all platforms)
  • Win32::GUI (Windows only)
  • Java::Swing (uses Java's Swing library)
  • wxPerl

  • Pseudo-Compiling Options:
  • Perl Packer (part of Par dist) - recommended
  • Perl2Exe (third-party application)
  • Note that both these options permit GUIs. Also, to implement GUIs for large apps you should read up on forking.

    Finally, I'd be remiss not to mention always use strict and warnings.

    [Corion]: marto: I believe nowadays, at least window.opener should not be set anymore (except maybe within the same domain)
    [Corion]: But I wouldn't really know as I don't use iexplore much (except at $work) and mostly surf with JS disabled (except at $work :) )
    [marto]: yeah, this is at work, where some intranet app launches links via When users close the intranet page so that only the new JS opened windows exist, clicking URLs in an email (or whatever) don't open
    [Corion]: marto: It somewhat makes sense that the reduced popup window doesn't get new URLs, but it makes less sense that no new browser window opens :)
