  • There isn't even a window manager written in Perl

    See Perlbox [perlbox.org]

    • From the perlbox site:
      perlBox is a pluggable desktop manager for Unix-type operating systems. It is written in perl/TK and integrates well with the blackbox window manager, thus the name.
      So it's not really a window manager (you know, the thingy that draws the border of your windows, with many native X11 calls in it----)
    • As noted in a previous post, perlbox is not a window manager at all. It is a desktop environment. See my paper at http://www.wru.umt.edu/~scmason/Mason_perlbox.pdf for a more detailed explanation. There is a window manager, of sorts, written in perl: perlwm. See: http://perlwm.sourceforge.net/ I am hoping to integrate a new, pure perl window manager with perlbox in the near future. Shane Mason me@perlbox.org
