Gtk2 is a Perl extension providing Perl bindings to the 2.x series of
the Gtk+ graphical user interface library.  This module allows you to
write graphical user interfaces in a perlish and object-oriented way,
freeing you from the casting and memory management in C, yet remaining
very close in spirit to original API.  Find out more about Gtk+ at
