Perl 6 / Rakudo and GUI Librariesby jrtayloriv (Pilgrim)
|on Mar 31, 2010 at 02:00 UTC||Need Help??|
jrtayloriv has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Has any progress been made on getting any common GUI libraries (such as Tk, GTK, wxWidgets, etc.) working with Rakudo Perl 6? Has anyone gotten any partial work done on it that I could take a look at? I found something about a related Perl Foundation grant that got cancelled recently, but I couldn't find further information on it.
The IRC channel was somewhat dead when I asked there, but someone mentioned that a big problem would be that "Rakudo and Parrot's interface to C code is still being worked on" ... any other major blockers that are preventing this from working?
Is it likely that many/any of these issues are going to be worked out by the release of Rakudo * later this year?
I've got a personal/hobby project that I was considering writing in Perl 6, but I'd need to be able to use some type of standard GUI lib with it ...
Thanks -- jrtayloriv
