  • 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.
