Quick and dirty linux GUI programming

"Podbrowser

"As I was reading about this tool I discovered the podbrowser which is a nice tool which does everything the podviewer does plus all the things I needed on top of that. I think it's based on the podviewer code as it looks a lot like it. This is also a great learning tool as it is open source and it also provides me with a gui program to browse the available perl documentation for modules installed on my system.

"Reading up

"While analyzing the source code of these two tools I came to the conclusion it would make it easier to understand if I would read a little more about GTK2 as it was not completely clear to me how the interface is build up. It is easy to understand, very readable code but I think trying to build something trivial myself first could build my understanding more than trying to change more complex code."
