in reply to Re: Re: Tk vs. wxPerl
in thread Tk vs. wxPerl

The above node Re: Tk vs. wxPerl is obviously IMVHO, so *for me* procedural programming is easy than OOP.

For example, *for me* is easier to write the hello world written in Tk
use strict; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new( -height => 100, -width => 350); $mw->title ("Hello, world!"); MainLoop;
than wx one:
use strict; use Wx; package MyApp; use vars qw(@ISA); @ISA = qw(Wx::App); sub OnInit { my( $this ) = shift; my( $frame ) = MyFrame->new(); $this->SetTopWindow( $frame ); $frame->Show( 1 ); } package MyFrame; use vars qw(@ISA); @ISA = qw(Wx::Frame); sub new { my( $this ) = shift->SUPER::new( undef, -1, 'Hello, world!', [200,200] , [350, 100] ); return $this; } package main; my( $app ) = MyApp->new(); $app->MainLoop();
So IMVHO to programming wxPerl you have to know more Perl than to programming with Tk.

Documentation issue: Tk has 3 books from O'Reilly, several chapters inside other books (Advanced Perl Programming, Professional Perl Development, others?), 1 newsgroup with years of posts, searchable with groups.google.com or with www.peltk.org, years of development with tons of scripts aka large community.

wxPerl unfortunately has only a mailing list without a working search engine and few excellent tutorials.

But Perl/Tk is years old and wxPerl is young. This scenario is IMVHO the normality.

DLL issue: my dir command on win32 says those dimensions. Only this.
