My client developed a cute little PERL script that does some useful
manipulation to an HTML file. They need to be able to migrate it
from the command line to a GUI, so less god-like folk can use it.
These users might be on a Mac, might be on Windows, or might
even be on Linux. Perl/Tk seemed the best way to achieve this.
Failing that, perhaps we'll have to resort to Tcl/Tk as a (gack!) front
end to running the PERL script. Pretty darned silly, though. I was
already cringing at the idea of making these folks install PERL and
then have them use PPM to install Tk. Making them install PERL
and Tcl/Tk would be that much worse, especially for such a simple
Sigh. If only I had the time to spend on porting Perl/Tk. I suspect
I'd have to learn A LOT more about Mac OS.
