in reply to Glade/Gtk review/tutorial

when I started with perl and Gtk on a thursday I only had the link to the well known tutorial which has been mentioned and linked above.
When I finished the application (about 1000 lines of code) on tuesday I had found The Cookbook, was subscribed to The Mailinglist and studied the sources of CSC Mail which has a follow-up project called Pronto (according to freshmeat) which I don't know anything about.

That's all I needed to get me running.

Hope this helps...

Regards... Stefan

    Pronto is an excellent mail client. There is a another version being written in C, but the main Pronto is written in GTK Perl. I've used the tutorial immensely, but when it comes to undocumented commands - it gets tough, especially CTREE and how to make it appear like a folder list, with dropdown squares [+] to expand a dir.

    I really like Glade, but found it hard to jump right into, trying to figure out how to access the names of controls and other items. I found writing my own code, was a lot easier because I'm not that experienced at perl object code. (been advancing and things are starting to click in Perl.. making me love programming again, and find a new language I can use on Linux - I programmed VB and other Basics for over 12 years, so I got spoiled, and ticked how I wasted my time, oh well... I'm glad I found Perl :)

    Sorry to sound rude, but when I saw this node, in the Perl Monks Discussion area instead of the Tutorials section, I was bothered somewhat. Shouldn't this be moved more to the Tutorials section since it really isn't a discussion, but rather a tutorial? Just my opinion.

      It's OK, all editors have the power to relocate root nodes. I put it here so that people could correct me and suggest changes, like stefan_k did. Then if it's deemed a worthwhile tutorial it will be bounced over to Tutorials.

      I have seen one or two others post their tutorials here and assumed it was the standard procedure.

      I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

        Yep, having this node moved over to Tutorials is already being discussed at Nodes to consider. It takes a higher monk than I to actually make the move though....
