    The gtk-perl bindings for Gtk1.x were never very complete, and Gtk1.x is obsolete as well. Gtk2::GladeXML along with Gtk2-Perl is where it's at. Scott and his crew have done an amazing job.

    As far as I can tell from following the mailing list there are binary installers for Gtk2 for Win32, and precompiled versions of the Perl modules with an installer apparently exist as well.

    Though you can get Perl to work on Win32, and GTK+ to work (more or less) on Win32, last I heard getting the Perl-GTK+ interface to work on Win32 is tricky, at best. So that eliminates Glade.

    I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
