in reply to GUI for GNU Go

there is a whole bunch of GnuGo GUIīs avalable, the most are listet here. but one of the most interesting is not, itīs GlGo, as the name asumes it is OpenGl powerded.
but there is no perl gui yet, so keep going if this is what you whant. when iīm at home where i donīt have to sit in front of a lame Win32 workstation i will test you code and give some further comments.
btw. i whould like to have a non java gui for the kgs. if someone has tomething else than CGoban2 or is developing something, let me know.

    I am sorry. I guess I should have clarified. I was looking for a Perl GNU Go front-end. I did find several others. But Perl/Tk is as good of a language as any (if not better) for doing GUIs and I was surprised to see that GNU Go did not exist in Perl.
      Yes, I see now that the link I posted was Java. I'm really not into that either, myself! I find Java to be slow and the GUI development painful in comparison with Tk. I love Tk. Continue your project, and upsurp the Sun-users :) I downloaded cygoban 1 just for kicks, and that appears to be a C (or something) Tk program, however I think the Cygoban 1 GUI interface is rather awkward and could definitely be improved. Well, that, and it's not being maintained anymore.
