There is lots os libraries (Gtk, Gtk+, Tk)...
Which one is the best (and the most common) ??
Gtk and Gtk+ are the asme thing (Gtk and Gtk2 are not). As far as I know there
are six toolkits you can use:
Gtk/Gnome is obsolete. You should on use it if you are using a linux
distribution that is more than a year or two old. My understanding is that the
QT/KDE module is not actively being developed, so you probably shouldn't use
it. The Win32 module (I don't recall it's name) only works on MS Windows So
I would never recomend it. That leaves three toolkits:
Now, this is the Gtk-Perl list so I am going to say you should use Gtk2/Gnome2
(and in particular you should use the Gtk2::GladeXML module), but Tk and Wx
both have one feature the Gtk2/Gnome2 is weak in: protability. Tk is the most
portable GUI module with Wx close behind. I have heard of people getting Gtk2
up and running on MS Windows, but i don't know much about it. In my opinion
using glade-2 and the Gtk2::GladeXML module is the easiest way to get a GUI up
and running in Perl, C, C++, C#, or any other language with bindings.
