( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi all:

I wish to write a small, irrelevant, GPLv3, Linux and Windows GUI application.

My inspiration is Juice ( ), which is written in Python and comes with a setup program for Windows, so that you don't need to install a Python interpreter first.

I could write the app in Java, but the user would have to install a Java Virtual Machine beforehand, although I've heard that you can bundle it too.

I have investigated a few options in the past:

Perl/TK GTK Qt wxWidgets

Most of need need extra libraries that are not normally installed on the system, especially under Windows.

What's the "path of least resistance" with Perl? It does not matter if the GUI is not top-notch, I'm writing the app for fun and don't want unncessary pain for me or for my users.

I can imagine there is no easy answer, but I still would be happy to hear from your personal experiences in this area.

Thanks in advance,
