I am the proverbial "accidental" programmer. I have found that I really like Perl and programming so I am pursuing that route now. I am the Debian systems administrator and junior Perl programmer for a company called Inspire.

wxPerl

[ #30847 ]

I think that the Perl community (or those that can hack C++) should throw their weight behind wxGlade and wxPerl. Perl/Tk is okay but showing its age and while there is a newer way to get the good Tk stuff with Tkx, I think wx is the way to go.

Just what I think...

  • Er, docs ?

    I won't repeat the tirades I've dumped in various other forums, but will ask if you intend to undertake the long overdue documentation project for it ? Alas, the primary keepers seem intransigent about providing docs (with little/no progess in the 2.5 years since I first attempted to use it). Which is really disheartening, esp. when you consider the nice job wxPython [wxpython.org] has done...including a nice new shiny book [manning.com].

    • The maintainer is happy for anyone that wants to help to have commit so they can add documentation.

      You included.
    • If I remember rightly the wxPython docs were/are not so hot either. That is why people kept clamoring for a book. The problem with the docs have always been they leaned to far to the C++ origins of wxWidgets.
  • I'll mention that the latest Strawberry Perl (Alpha 2) [vanillaperl.com] for Win32 can successfully build Alien::wxWidgets [cpan.org] and Wx [cpan.org].
