Gtk - Perl module for the Gimp Toolkit library


        use Gtk '-init';
        my $window = new Gtk::Window;
        my $button = new Gtk::Button("Quit");
        $button->signal_connect("clicked", sub {Gtk->main_quit});


The Gtk module allows Perl access to the Gtk+ graphical user interface library. You can find more information about Gtk+ on The Perl binding tries to follow the C interface as much as possible, providing at the same time a fully object oriented interface and Perl-style calling conventions.

You will find the reference documentation for the Gtk module in the Gtk::reference manpage. There is also a cookbook style manual in Gtk::cookbook. The Gtk::objects manpage contains a list of the arguments and signals for each of the classes available in the Gtk, Gnome and related modules. There is also a list of the flags and enumerations along with their possible values.
