Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am relatively new to Perl, I have used it on and off for a number of years, but never did anything very complicated. I am attempting to create an application for my own use that requires a GUI. I started writing native Perl/Tk, but am becoming a tad overwhelmed, especially with the Geometry managers, I came from an environment where we had tools to create the GUI. I have found and attempted to use several, but most of them require almost as much understanding of Perl/Tk as writing it natively. The only two tools that I have found that seem to do what I want is visual Camel and Eclipse SWT. Camel is unacceptable because it doesn't support very much, and Eclipse SWT appears to generate only Java code. Does anyone know of a free tool that has the functionality of Eclipse SWT, but will generate Perl/tk code? If Eclipse has this functionality, I could not find it. Documentation for most of these type products leave much to be desired. Any help in this direction would be appreciated.
