Gtk2-Perl is a set of wrappers for the Perl programming language around the GTK+ GUI library and the other GNOME platform libraries. GTK2-Perl is free software and licensed under the LGPL. Developers and interested parties can usually be found on the IRC channel #gtk-perl on irc.gnome.org.

Gtk2-Perl is part of the official GNOME Platform Bindings release,[1] along with C++ bindings, Python bindings and Java bindings.

Example[edit]

use Gtk2 '-init';
 
$window = Gtk2::Window->new('toplevel');
$window->set_title("Hello World!");
 
$button = Gtk2::Button->new("Press me");
$button->signal_connect(clicked => sub { print "Hello again - the button was pressed\n"; });
 
$window->add($button);
$window->show_all;
 
Gtk2->main;
 
0;

The sample program creates a GTK+ Window titled "Hello World!". The window contains a Button labelled "Press me." When the button is pressed, the message "Hello again - the button was pressed" is displayed on the console via the callback inside the anonymous subroutine connected to the "clicked" signal.
