There are a few existing toolkits that could be used to do something
like this.  Tk is the traditional one, but lately people have been
talking about Wx, which I believe is supposed to look a little better
(or more like a native app):


If you try this, don't forget to check the Install file:

  "You need to install wxWidgets before you can compile wxPerl."
