Win32::GUI::UserGuide::Introduction - Introduction to Win32::GUI


What is Win32::GUI?

"Win32::GUI is a Win32-platform native graphical user interface toolkit for Perl. Basically, it's an XS implementation of most of the functions found in user32.dll and gdi32.dll, with an object oriented Perl interface and an event-based dialog model that mimic the functionality of visual basic.

It was a big fun for me to put it up, hope it will be a fun for you too :-)"

Where to get it?

The creator and chief maintainer of the Win32::GUI module is Aldo Calpini. The current active maintainer is Robert May. The module and pertinent information can be found at (See below for more information.)

There are still some incomplete parts, and particularly some sparse documentation. If you would like to contribute to the developement then plase contact Robert May ( and join the perl-win32-gui-hackers mailing list.

Other Information

There is a mailing list that you can use to ask questions or give your contribution to the module; I follow the mailing list very closely (as always, time permitting...). To subscribe, goto: and follow the instructions on screen.
