in reply to Creating Advanced Client-Side Applications With Perl

The statement may be true for Client-side applications that are supposed to run inside a webbrowser. Hasn't anyone heard that Perl has Tk, wxPerl, Win32::GUI or Gtk?

Is it badly documented? I think not. Tk is very well documented, there are even O'Reilly books about it. wxPerl has a very extensive documentation set, which is basically the wxWidgets documentation with wxPerl sidenotes.

If you can create advanced server-side applications with Perl, you can create advanced client-side applications too, just by adding a GUI to it, just like Java does

And if the problem is the Perl installation that 'needs' to be on the client's machine...just use PAR

    Among all the thoughtful replies two seem to most directly refute the object of my meditation. Hopefully the mod_perl folks will reconsider their mythos in light of this discussion.

    mod_perl docs: "Unlike Perl, with Java you can create advanced client side applications." "There are some client side Perl solutions like PerlScript in MSIE 5.0, but"

    jdporter: "Java and PerlScript is apples and oranges. PerlScript is an alternative to Javascript/JScript/VBScript (etc.). An alternative to Java (on the client) would be something embedded, like Flash, and whatever Tk or Wx thingies people might have come up with."

    Jouke: "If you can create advanced server-side applications with Perl, you can create advanced client-side applications too, just by adding a GUI to it, just like Java does." "Hasn't anyone heard that Perl has Tk, wxPerl, Win32::GUI or Gtk?" "And if the problem is the Perl installation that 'needs' to be on the client's machine...just use PAR"

    Thanks++
