Glade doesn't support Perl. There are some flakey Perl libraries you have to use to produce Perl code, and you have to read the API and write your own code since they dont come as a runable script. Its easier to write the gtk perl code by hand from the XML files Glade produces than figure out how to convert them.

    Hi

    Glade do support perl. See GTK2::Builder module. Its so easy to create and align GUI widgets in Glade (it produce XML file) and write call back in Perl. But, its all personal preference, Should I write Gui code or not.

    For code example, Have a look at this: http://code.google.com/p/saaral-soft-search-spider/source/browse/trunk/src/Libs/GtkSpiderGui.pm



    Thanks & Regards,

    My Perl Gtk2 technology demo project - http://code.google.com/p/saaral-soft-search-spider/ , contributions are welcome.

      I saw http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/doc/pod/Gtk2/Builder.html auto generated faux-documentation (not sure if it even works since it looks like untested SWIG style bindings to C calls that nobody has never tested). No "glade2perl.pl" script is included with Gtk2:: to go in your /bin. There are 5 competing 3rd party Glade and Perl modules on CPAN. Which do I use? Who knows.
