availability of Pq which is an implementation of the Perl/Tk GUI
programming interface using Trolltech's Qt toolkit.
The Perl/Tk-over-Qt implementation of Pq has several advantages over
the original Perl/Tk implementation. The use of the C++ GUI toolkit Qt
presents script programmers and users with a more modern and native
look and feel, improved performance and broadened platform support. An
optional Qtopia allows for the creation of modern GUI applications for
embedded devices using the popular Perl/Tk API.
"Pq is aimed at becoming a drop-in replacement where all you need to
change in existing Perl/Tk scripts is to replace the initial 'use Tk'
statement with 'use Pq'", says Harri Porten of froglogic.
Pq is free software based on a BSD-style license and available at no cost.
"Working with froglogic has been an outstanding experience. Their
depth of knowledge of the Qt toolkit was instrumental in creating
Pq. I give them my highest recommendation", says Paul Falbe of Cassens
Transport who is using Pq to create the new version of Cassen's mobile
