I recently got a project to write a standalone GUI program, a SGML-Editor to be precise (for an internal SGML-like format).
Since i had a lot of back-end code already worked out for the SGML parsing part and i have experience in Perl with Tk, i decided to write the application in Perl.
I experienced that for a larger Tk application, Tk/Perl can cause a quite heavy load on a 'light' workstation (like PI and PII systems <300 Mhz)
Though so far it's working fine, fast and everybody is happy, i was wondering if anyone thinks there is a limit to what you should use Perl/Tk for.
I mean, is Perl/Tk suitable for a complete GUI application (like Games, Editor's or spreadsheets) or is it more suitable for light script-front-ends and configuration-GUI's ?
