Wow is right. Why would anybody want to use PERL when they could use Python......

Re: perl fans: perlwm

well ... maybe someone should hack mozilla or khtml and make a CSS-WM

you must be a real fan of scripting stuff to make a wm in it and then use it for daily work

Re: perl fans: perlwm

XUL rules....I don't know what it is yet but I will find out. smile
Edit: Is it a GUI library that runs on webservers? If it is it is great stuff!


arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy

Re: perl fans: perlwm

XUL (pronounced "zool") is Mozilla's XML-based User interface Language that lets you build feature-rich cross platform applications that can run connected or disconnected from the Internet. These applications are easily customized with alternative text, graphics and layout so they can be readily branded or localized for various markets. Web developers already familiar with Dynamic HTML (DHTML) will learn XUL quickly and can start building applications right away.

This document will describe the compelling reasons for application developers to leverage XUL and Mozilla technology for building cross platform applications. This same investigation will provide sufficient explanation of Mozilla's motivation to build XUL and why the Mozilla platform is constructed using it. The key features and benefits of XUL will be explored followed by an examination of supporting Mozilla technologies. Finally, a mini case study of a Calendar application written in XUL will reinforce the benefits of building applications with Mozilla.

http://mozilla.org/projects/xul/joy-of-xul.html

Much of Mozillas and Firefoxs GUIs are written with XUL. That's why they are so much cross-platform and rather easy to port to new ones. It only uses C/C++ to call the needed XUL stuff and run them.

It is not a GUI library run on a webserver. Mozilla runs the code itself.

Personally, I don't like XUL much, it's so slow compared to native programs. And it's a good thing that the mozillas rendering engine (Gecko) can be embedded in native programs to render webpages nicely.. No need to use those laggy xul programs, heh.  smile
