    Hi fadiebia,

    I am not much of a Perl programmer (in fact, I know very little Perl) but it looks as if Perl TK is a toolkit for Perl. This means it is a set of objects that you would be able to use to display certain elements on a screen (windows, buttons, textboxes...). So, this definetly seems like a solution for you if you want to make GUI's in Perl. The website for PerlTk is As for other options, as I said, I am not much of a Perl programmer, so I can't be much of a help there.

    Hope that helps,
