in reply to Just starting Perl

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.
