SPUG:Gtk-Perl and Gnome 2, on RedHat 8

Quick answer: Apparently not. I went to the Gtk-Perl home page and
didn't find any updates since sometime in 2001 (which was version
0.7008), well before GNOME 2 came out.

Gnome, and GTK, have changed significantly since then. I'm no expert,
but in particular GTK2 seems to have changed the names on a bunch of
things and maybe even how they're handled. I haven't tried Perl-GTK, but
I've been messing around with Python's GTK modules, and I've found that
stuff using Python's GTK bindings doesn't work on RH8 with GNOME 2,
where GTK2 versions do.

Really, you should probably think of GTK and GTK2 as two completely
different animals.

My guess is that Gtk-Perl and similar stuff will eventually catch up
with the current state of the GNOME (or that someone will just write a
Perl-GTK2 module or something). Eventually.
