gtk2-perl is the collective name for a set of perl bindings for Gtk+ 2.x and various related libraries. These modules make it easy to write Gtk and Gnome applications using a natural, perlish, object-oriented syntax.
This site exists to serve the needs of developers and end-users who wish to use gtk2perl on the Windows platform, and who have neither the where-with-all, or the will, to compile gtk2perl from sources. Please note that these binary packages are for the ActiveState distribution of perl only.

new stable releases: Glib and Gtk2 1.020
Fri, 12 Dec 2003 by tripix
Ripped off the gtk2perl home page. (hope nobody minds)
Win32 versions of Gtk2Perl 1.020 released
DependanciesYou will need to download all the developer and runtime installation files
However, end users may be able to getaway with skipping the developer files (those containing -dev- or .lib. in their name), but I have not tested this.
Download Binary PackagesGlib-1.020-win32-AS806.exe
Installation InstructionsThere are three main parts to this:
I haven't installed into any directory other than c:\usr, it may work. Although I think one of the packages 'expects' to be in c:\usr by default, it (what ever 'it' was) may be confgurable, I haven't tried.
For easy-of-use I would recommend you alter the system PATH environment variable permenantly.
Note: ensure you perform an 'unzip here' type action into c:\usr, creating a directory structure under c:\usr that contains at least:
bin contrib etc include lib man manifest share
You will need to download the
Once unpacked run [Gtk2 unzipped dir]/gtk-demo/main.pl.
Note: ensure you have c:\usr\bin and c:\usr\lib in your path
Tip: You may wish to (re)associate the .pl extenstion with perl\bin\wperl.exe if you find that you can get-by without the cmd.exe window popping up.
