Yes, I agree, ...the best... doesn't exist. But I hope (and I'm sure of it) you know what I mean...
Regarding the statement «Who needs a GUI? We have a CLI!» I have the following about that:
Yes, we don't need anything more than a CLI. That's true... We're like a fish in the water when we can work on the CLI.
But I think we (programmers) are so focused and isolated in our "CLI cocoon" that we sometimes forget that there's much more people out there that have not even a clue what CLI is, let alone how to use it and to work with it on the command line. Whether it's Linux or Windows or Mac, doesn't matter. I'm sure they are in much bigger numbers than we are, to be honest. The majority of people simply use a computer, they don't work with it. They hardly know how to switch it on/off and send an e-mail. And perhaps look a bit on the internet. And there it stops for many of them...
It's for that "other kind of users"-reason that I want to make a small GUI so that it's doable for them to use my application written in Perl. And in the meantime I will enjoy learning yet another language. Always inspiring... ;-)
