[Melbourne-pm] GUI toolkit du jour

I've heard that WxWidgets is the way to go, though that said, I've never
used that myself, nor have I seen anything done with Perl and WxWidgets
- at least note that pushed the "and we use WxWidgets!!" up front.
Audacity is written init, but I suspect it sits on top of lots of C++. I
have heard getting wxperl to compile can be difficult.

Wx tutorial - old though, form 2001.

Then again, perhaps you could use this thing called "HTML" - apparently
its very cross-platform....

Subject: [Melbourne-pm] GUI toolkit du jour

I'm old school and remember about PerlTk.  But I sense that it has been
eclipsed, or not, by some other GUI toolkit.  What's the preferred
option these days?

I am targeting Windows sans cygwin, if that makes a difference.
