I haven't played with TK in a bit but with my head aching at the thought of writing a bunch of SDL widgets to facilitate playlist entry on my media player, I'm thinking of just shelling out to a TK app to handle it.

I hate writing GUI, so I was wondering what everyone else does? Just suck it up and code it or are you using any tools to facilitate, at least the initial design?

Which got my thinking of a project I started in 2003 that translated HTML forms to a TK app. I only put in a day or two on it, but the initial run at it was promising. I wrote it more of a test of a HTML::Parser derivitive I was writing HTML::Parser::Context)

So aside from my initial question, anyone see any value in the latter approach?
