Perl bindings to the 2.x series of the Gtk+ graphical user interface library

GTK-Perl allows Perl developers to write GTK+ 2.x applications. The bindings use an object oriented syntax that attempts to remain close to the C API, but take a more Perl-like approach where appropriate.

The Perl bindings to the 3.x series of the gtk+ toolkit is under development.
