PerlCard?

An anonymous perl hacker writes: "PythonCard is a HyperCard clone written in Python using the WxPython toolkit. Anyone know of a PerlCard project?"

Damian Conway did some work on a LlamaCard project a few years ago, but most of those links appear to be dead at the moment...

    According to this [http://www.consultix-inc.com/munging.html]
    it should live on CPAN, however it's not there nor is it on BACKPAN [ftp://pause.perl.org/pub/backpan/authors/id/D/DC/DCONWAY/].

    I was actually supervising an exceptional Honours student, Aaron Wigley, who put that module together (and gave the TPC4 talk on it).

    For the last two years he hasn't had the time (or perhaps sufficient motivation) to put it together for the CPAN, despite repeated pleas from me to do so.

    I'd suggest that anyone (or perhaps: everyone) who is interested in it send him mail [mailto] imploring him to release it. Perhaps the combined cajoling of the entire Perl community will succeed where my lone voice has failed.
  • I never used anything like HyperCard, so I can't compare it to anything, but I think that anyone who is interested in a RAD GUI in Perl can take a look at Guido [sourceforge.net]. You can develop Perl/Tk applications with Guido. I haven't used it that extensivly but it seems quite okay.
