in reply to Perl/TK with Windows

No, you do not need an X server to run Perl/Tk on windows. You can use Activstate Perl, which runs on windows and has a native port of Perl/Tk.

    I have to write a Perl application...I know almost nothing about windows and Perl.

If you have never done any windows programming, and you want to keep things simple, then I would not recommend using wxPerl. Perl/Tk is simpler than wxPerl to implement, especially if you have not done any other GUI programming.

Cheers!

    Exactly! Once you've learned Perl/Tk, you can always rewrite it to use WxPerl or Win32::GUI.
