Lots of questions! I have some answers, but first, you should know about the gtk-perl list. The gtkperl website is out of date. gtk-perl now supports Gtk+ 2 and there are bindings (announced today) for the development version. gtk-perl is at 1.0, IIRC. There is a whole directory of examples with the distro.

You can use Glade and proably any tools that talk to glade (I have not tried the ones you mention) to generate code that works with gtk-perl. I understand the easiest way is to generate the XML with glade, then read that into your perl program. Again, I have not tried it, but there has been discussion on the list and you should check the archives at the link noted above.

To answer some of your specific questions, Gtk+ exists on Linux and Windows. A Win32 version of the perl bindings should be out any time now. You do not need Gnome for Gtk+. You do need Gnome if you use Gnome features (i.e. you use Gnome widgets in your design).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
