Hrm. Well, I hadn't planned on announcing this, but I've been working on
a Perl/Gtk Tutorial during my free time. It isn't anywhere near complete,
but you can find it at:
Right now, only seven chapters are there. I hope to add about four a week
(though I won't be able to this week, I'm busy).
This seems like a good time to bring up other things as well. First, I'm
pretty new to both Gtk and Perl, so I'm kind of figuring things out as I
go (the quickest way to learn is to try to teach). I would really
appreciate feedback on what I could do better. I would especially
appreciate corrections of any errors I might make (particularly in the
explanations, all of my example programs have been well tested).
Also, this tutorial is really just a modification of the GTK+ tutorial.
The HTML is mine, and the Perl is mine, but most of the explanation is
word for word out of the GTK+ tutorial. Also, most of the example
programs are just ports of the ones in the GTK+ tutorial. Because of
this, I have several questions about the copywright. The copywright page
of the GTK+ tutorial says that:
"Permission is granted to copy and distribute translations of this
document into another language, under the above conditions for
I assume that "other languages" include computer languages as well as
natural languages. Is this correct? And since my tutorial will probably
be 50% (or more) derivitive work, how should I do my copywright page? I
don't really care who gets the copywright, just so long as I do it right.
I have tried to contact Tony Gale, the current copywright owner for
the GTK+ tutorial, but my mail (to firstname.lastname@example.org) bounced. Apparantly that
address isn't valid anymore. If someone could tell me how to contact him
with my questions, I would really appreciate it.
