  • The binaries for windows and ActiveState Perl worked beautifully. It took about 3 minutes to download and install. The wxPerl installer uses ppm which is nice.
    • I'm on Redhat linux, though. Trying to find the RPMs and install them was a pain. For some reason, the wxGTK-devel* versions didn't always seem to have the header files and utilities that I needed. Also, given that I am a relative newbie to linux only added to the fun.

      While I don't miss Windows, I sometimes miss how easy it was to install stuff (shh ... don't tell anyone I said that).

      • Yes, I was just providing some encouraging words to Perl users on Windows who might think that installing wxPerl on Windows might be equally as difficult. I use Linux sometimes as well and the installation difficulties can be a pain at times. I played around some with the wxPerl examples. Very nice! I knew that wxWindows for Python was popular, but I had no idea wxPerl was so far along.
  • Its probably just me, but somehow, I just havent been able to wrap my mind around doing wxWindows related stuff in Perl ? I still use Win32::GUI and/or Tk for the (very few) GUI apps that I write.

    wxPython, on the other hand, seems very natural to write code in.. probably some sort of mental block with the way objects were handled or something.

  • or did you not see those (or did they not work for you somehow)?

    http://wxperl.sourceforge.net/download.html [sourceforge.net] => http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxperl/perl-Wx-0.18-1_wxgtk2.4.2.i386.rpm [sourceforge.net]

    I think your pain comes from installing RPMs (a lot of the traffic on the wxPerl mailing list is with people having trouble compiling it themself because they did not download all the neccessary RPMs ...).

    I find it much easier to download wxWindows binary packages from the website, or just download the source and
