in reply to [Solved] AnyEvent + Wx, Gtk2/3 or Tk ?

I will also need to use AnyEvent in order to do asynchronous HTTP requests and IO file operations. The solution thus seems to be Wx + AnyEvent.

What is that?

Yeah, the "watching filehandles" thing is undated -- the 2.9 branch has added some support, though a lot of that depends on the OS -- you can always use Glib with wxWidgets :) Hey, even perl doesn't support it :)

I wouldn't like to start a project with a GUI Toolkit, and realize when the project gets bigger, that the GUI is too slow so i have to restart it from scratch.

Prototype -- simulate the type of performance you're expecting, its trivial (say, creating 10,000 buttons and 200-100-line-text-widgets)

But "HTTP requests and IO file operations" sounds wonderfully vague -- I don't think it'll matter what you choose

    Prototyping, very good idea, thank you! :-)
