Helps Scheme programmers develop visual applications

Guile-Gnome is a Guile wrapper collection for some of the GNOME core libraries.

This package tries to build the following wrappers: Gobject, Glib, Atk, Pango, Pangocairo, Gdk, Gdk-Pixbuf, Gtk, Libglade, Libgnome, Libgnomeui, Libgnomecanvas.

Guile-Gnome makes GNOME accesible from Guile, so it provides a convenient interface for Scheme programmers to develop visual applications.
