    wxWindows or GTK?


    Hi,

    I've been programming C, C++ and php for a while, and am learning perl now, but so far all the applications i've done are either non-graphical, or are web applications displayed in html. I'm hoping to try to learn a widget kit, but wasn't sure which one to go with.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I know wxWindows is supposed to be great for portabililty, and GTK can be used with php, perl, c++ , etc with a wrapper, But not sure which is better to use?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    it all boils down to which one you prefer the look of. it seems that gtk has more development done on it compared to wxwindows. therefore, i'd be inclined to advise that you go for the former.

    GTK+ or Qt+KDE, or if you don't care about a toolkit still in alpha, EFL.

    I'd use GTK. GTK is portable too, see for example gaim and gimp runs nicely on windows/mac too.
