in reply to JAVA GUI for perl program

If you think Tk sucks, use something else, like Prima, or Wx, maybe even Gtk. All of the above beat the Java GUI option. Heck, using CGI beats starting up java.

(GUI) Windows Programming FAQ

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
** The third rule of perl club is a statement of fact: pod is sexy.

    (GUI) Windows Programming FAQ is really badly out of date. Judging by a comparison of the info at gtk.org, if would be counterproductive to use it except for links to GUI sites.
      Maybe you'd like to respond to the FAQ detailing how.

    I forgot to mention this: the GUI must run on Windows (2000,XP,2003), Solaris, HPUX and in near future on Linux.

    So, from this point, Gtk is not a very good choice (it's hard to compile and run from a CD/DVD on Windows)

    Wx and Prima looks nice, I'll give them a try

    Some issues that I'm afraid of (because I get them in TK) are:

    • GUI that froze during procesing databases in the background - in Java the process can be launched on a separate thread (I know that this can be solved using threads in perl, but I'm not sure how well it's working on Windows).
    • Tree view of file system (like Tk::DirTree that is buggy)
