( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Your code examples look nice to my eyes. You might want to post this on the gtk-perl maillist as other people are also working on tutorials and examples for Gtk3.

Before anyone gets too excited, Perl/Gtk3 is far from ready for use. The automatic documentaion generation of Gtk2, is no longer there. So there are NO docs for Perl. How are you going to expect people to work on something with no docs?

From Torsten Schoenfeld, the Perl Gtk3 leader:

There's indeed no Perl-specific documentation yet, and I'm not inclined to write it. All the necessary information is available on <http://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/> and in the file "<prefix>/share/gir-1.0/Gtk-3.0.gir". A nice little project might be to write a viewer for all the information in the *.gir files (which include the actual documentation that ends up on developer.gnome.org). It could use Perl-specific syntax so people don't have to do the translation in their head. I definitely do not consider Gtk3 "finished" yet. We no doubt still miss quite a few overrides, and there are one or two low-level problems left.

You'd have to add Perl support. From the looks of it, you'd have to extend <http://git.gnome.org/browse/gobject-introspection/tree/giscanner/mallardwriter.py> to include a MallardFormatterPerl class and add mallard-Perl-*.tmpl files. You could most likely borrow heavily from the existing Python stuff.

That would be another option. Note that you don't have to write an XML parser yourself; there are lots on CPAN.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
