( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am contemplating playing around with windows programs and perl. I have been using perl scripts for many things at work on my linux boxes, and wanted to try writing some things for the windows boxes too. Specifically I want to play with GUI programming. Is Perl/TK the way way to go about this, or are there other better options? I read that Perl/TK is outdated, and should not be used anymore, and to use tkx. Any advice?

Is one easier than the other? Is one faster, better, and so on. I know, these can be loaded questions, but I don't really know where to start. I found several how-to's, but they seem to be very out of date. CPAN has a link to a toutorial on the perl tk page, but it was from 1999. Is it still what I should be working with?

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
