Ok, originally this was a meditation. Which meant that the below update would have been applied to the main node.
This is just a heads up for you GUI folks out there. I just got shown a kickass library that blew my socks off.
Check Prima out. Its a whole lot nicer looking than any TK ive seen so far.
Ok, im sitting here getting a walk through of Prima, and all I can do is laugh and shout at how cool it is. Dmitry has done some reallly cool stuff. Full GUI designer (in a Delphi style), lots of toys. Pod viewer. File vewier. Matrix Style demo. ALL IN PERL The only C involved is a libary to povide a common GUI baseline. It derives features from Windows,OS/2 and X11, and its really cool. Watching him drag a font onto a Window and have it change its font (ala OS/2) was just too cool so I added this update.
This is the freshest coolest neatest thing i perl that I have seen (besides Perl itself.) If GUI in perl has been something you wanted, but TK didnt move your world you have to check this stuff out.
<Elian> And I do take a kind of perverse pleasure in having an OO assembly language...
