I didn't say wxPerl was "better" than Perl/Tk... I said I like it better. On most linux distributions, installation is as easy as "apt-get install wxperl". For windows, there are pre-built binaries available here:
http://www.wxperl.co.uk/
There are tools, like wxGlade, that make building your GUI a mostly drag-n-drop exercise. So, it is also possible to have a small app up and running in minutes with wxPerl.

The OP listed learning Perl/Tk as an essential step, as if it were the ONLY possible solution for GUIs with perl, and that's clearly not the case. There's also PerlQt. Like all things perl, TMTOWTDI.

    You're absolutely right. I indeed misread "like better" as "is better". And because I like Tk that much, I immediately jumped in.

    runrig already mentioned that the Learning/Tk book is kinda useless and Mastering Perl/Tk is much better. I wholeheartedly agree. Though I'd like to add that after reading the latter, having the perl/Tk quick reference guide available is darn handy.

    ... and Glib and Gtk2 and X11::Protocol all to get into graphical front ends. Not really for starting out simple GUI apps though.


    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
