"It feels like this is the right way of learning for me, the perl programming language is pretty easy to learn (the basics at least) and it's very forgiving (downsides to that too, I know) and perl-Gtk is very nice as it makes it possible to create GUI interfaces very quickly without too much technical knowledge.

"Getting together information

"The only problem I encountered at first is getting together the information to know exactly what to use and how to use it. I started by reading the sources for some programs I found on my system and debugging them to learn the way they are processed. This was a great learning experience, my knowledge has quickly expanded by doing this. Still there were some important things I really needed to help me trough the learning process. I needed good reference material, examples and a book.

"Sadly enough there doesn't seem to be any printed book about perl-Gtk, luckily I did find some great tutorials on the perl-Gtk site. I also found some other helpful tools and resources by accident."
