Desktop application with Perl

Ever wondered how to create pretty looking windowing applications without perltk? The answer is wxPerl. wxPerl is a perl module that allows a Perl program to use the wxWidgets GUI toolkit. If you don't know anything about Perl or wxWidgets, you may find a short explanation below. If you want to learn more, go to wxWidgets. In short wxPerl allows you to write portable GUI applications in Perl, using the wxWidgets object oriented interface. Look at the screenshots.


wxWidgets gives you a single, easy-to-use API for writing GUI applications on multiple platforms. Link with the appropriate library for your platform (Windows/Unix/Mac) and compiler (almost any popular C++ compiler), and your application will adopt the look and feel appropriate to that platform. On top of great GUI functionality, wxWidgets gives you: online help, network programming, streams, clipboard and drag and drop, multithreading, image loading and saving in a variety of popular formats, database support, HTML viewing and printing, and much much more.
