in reply to Libraries for web based UI (complex one)

Unless you're talking Tk or some other window manager interface, you can't do UI like that with Perl...? I'm sure you know this so maybe I don't understand the question.

If you're looking for the most Desktop-like JS lib for web stuff, it's ExtJS. It was a fork from YUI originally, IIRC, and it's feature rich if a little on the large side. There are two examples of using it with Cat here: Getting started with ExtJS screen library and Catalyst with Ext+Ajax: Editable Data Grids.

FWIW, there are a couple of really hot jQuery (my pet lib) plugins that do some of the same things (like live data tables and dojo-style comboboxes). Though jQuery plays nicely with ExtJS and other libs so you can mix and match.

(update: downcased k in Tk; linked jQuery.)

    I know there must be some JavaScript involved, but at least some of that may be generated by its Perl counterpart. Which would be what I'd like best. I'll definitely have a look at ExtJS, I'd rather not mix&match until I feel comfortable with one of them :-) Thanks!

[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
[hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
[ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
