I am most interested in this comparison from Perl's point of view, but any
comparative information would be appreciated.

I've not seen any bindings for KDE/Qt to scripting languages - a great

Could someone help me out here?

This is the current extent of my understanding:

- Since Gnome/Gtk+ it's written in C, it's easier to make bindings for
other languages.  Indeed, there are more bindings for Gnome/Gtk+ than

Not true.  There are tools such as SWIG ( I think) that take
either C or C++ and generate bindings for Tcl, Perl and many other
scripting languages mostly automatically.  I've used this extensively on
C++ and Tcl - it works a treat.

One of the things I don't understand is why a lot of the Gnome language
bindings are independent when something like SWIG could be used to make
bindings for most of the scripting languages in one go.
