in reply to Visual Perl/Tk???
yes, i can atest to perl and gui programming, it is ok for small applications/guis, but with small to medium size programs (like 1200 lines of code) that works flawless in console, will make the gui give unexpected results, some of this is prob my fault for not finding the proper documentation, but what looks like something that would work, can very well give unexpected results. like for instance, i use wxperl and have been trying to populate a listctrl with a foreach loop. i have went around in circles trying to accomplish what i need, and i think it is a formatting problem tbh. everything works unless i try wxLC_SORT methods, then it will terminate any color after the first entry. i think you need to assess what you are trying to do first and think if a gui will really help you in the long run. and my best advice, is to read read read :) and the gui tools will only take you so far until you become lost, if you write it out by hand you will know what every function does :) i tried glade and other programs but i didnt liek it much, it was nice to have, but finding examples on the web and documentation on your particular modules yoru trying to use will help you learn about what your doing, and will give you a better sense of accomplishment when your done :)
sorry for the run on sentence lol
